AgustaWestland Statement A Day Before Their Reply To MoD

AgustaWestland Statement:

With reference to the Indian Ministry of Defence’s request for information regarding the AW101 contract, received last week, AgustaWestland confirms it is responding to the notice in the spirit of full cooperation with the Indian Ministry of Defence.

AgustaWestland confirmed that its conduct has been fully compliant with the rules which regulate the AW101 helicopters contract signed with India.

The contract was awarded to AgustaWestland following a comprehensive technical and flight evaluation of competing types performed by the Indian Air Force in accordance with the Defence Procurement Procedures. This evaluation demonstrated that the AW101 was the only aircraft able to fully meet the Indian Air Force’s operational requirements, as already confirmed by the Indian Authorities in different occasions.
