Kuwait orders 28 Eurofighter jets
The Eurofighter consortium around the arms company Airbus announced in Rome that Kuwait had concluded an agreement with Italy to purchase 28 Typhoon fighter jets. According to press reports, the order for the fighter jets has a volume of around eight billion euros.
The Eurofighter is a joint project between Great Britain, Italy, Spain and Germany. The European group Airbus, BAE Systems from Great Britain and Finmeccanica from Italy are involved in the consortium. Finmeccanica's shares rose more than five percent after the agreement was announced.
The aircraft are now also operated in Saudi Arabia and Austria. There is also a bulk order from Oman. A Eurofighter spokesman said there was also interest from Denmark, Belgium, Indonesia, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia. "We rate this order as a positive market signal for further orders." In addition, the consortium expects opportunities in Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.
Important prestige success?
Should Kuwait get serious about the purchase, the consortium could produce the jet beyond 2020. This would be an important success for the companies involved. So far, the aircraft has mostly lost races in the export business against competing models from the USA, Sweden or France. Most recently, the French competitor Rafale from the arms company Dassault Aviation received large orders in Qatar as well as from Egypt and India.
The news agency Reuters quoted insiders as saying that Kuwait is currently negotiating with the US company Boeing to buy 24 fighter jets. This is about an order volume of more than three billion dollars.
