According to the Inspectorate’s press release, a public procurement procedure was started. Next, negotiations with the bidders are planned, and finally submission of the final offers would be requested.
The aircraft to be acquired are defined as “small”. They shall be capable of transporting 12-14 passengers. Their continental range is not to be smaller than 5 000 km. The agreement is also to cover the initial logistics bundle and training programme for the crews and the ground crews.
