Peru orders two more Alenia C-27Js
Peru has doubled its order for Alenia Aermacchi C-27J Spartan twin-engined tactical transport aircraft, and will ultimately order as many as eight more. Peru awarded an initial order for two aircraft in November 2013, worth about $122 million, and will now order another two for a similar price. The order will be finalised before the end of the year.
Alenia Aermacchi’s CEO, Giuseppe Giordo, said the company would soon open an office in Lima, “given the size of Peru’s programme,” to manage the contract, which he said “opens interesting market prospects throughout Latin America,” the only continent in which Alenia Aermacchi was not previously present.
