Senegal and Côte d’Ivoire have signed a framework agreement covering the sale of an unspecified number of CN235 and NC212 aircraft, PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI) confirmed on 15 April, when it posted an Indonesian media report about the deal on its website.

The report said the agreement was signed by PTDI president Elfien Goentoro and Gaby Peretz, the head of a Belgian company called Air Defence Trading that is acting on behalf of the African countries. It added that the contracts are expected to be finalised in July or August.

The agreement reportedly covers the delivery of aircraft worth USD75 million: a single CN235-220 maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) and two NC212-220 maritime surveillance aircraft for Senegal; and a single CN235-220 transport for Côte d’Ivoire.
