Singapore Airshow 2014: AgustaWestland secures another Philippine AW109 contract

12 February 2014

AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, has secured an order from the Philippine Navy (PN) for two more AW109 maritime helicopters, continuing the company's recent success in the market.

Announced at the Singapore Airshow on 12 February, the contract brings the PN's AW109 orders up to five aircraft and comes just three months after AgustaWestland announced a deal to supply eight AW109s to the Philippine Air Force (PAF).

The PN's initial batch of three AW109s was ordered in March 2013 and delivered in December. The newly ordered aircraft are scheduled for delivery to the PN in the second half of 2014, said AgustaWestland in a statement.
