Leonardo is spearheading a long-running Eurofighter promotion campaign for the Polish Air Force.
Speaking at the recent Radom Air Show, Costa Panvinirosati, Leonardo’s head of marketing for Eurofighter, said that Poland represents a really good opportunity for future sales of the Eurofighter.
“Poland began the process of modernizing its air forces several years ago. Due to its strategic location, on the eastern flank of NATO, Poland needs the best of the best in terms of air capabilities.”
“Of course, air superiority is one of the key elements of a very complex equation. For us, the Eurofighter is the best answer if we consider these needs. “In today’s combat air market, nothing comes close in terms of air superiority.”
Leonardo is often considered to be an Italian defense company, but in reality, it has had a large presence in Poland for many years.
“For us, the Eurofighter is the best answer if we consider these needs. In today’s combat air market, there is nothing that comes close in terms of air superiority,” says Costa Panvinirosati,
The company has about 3,000 employees there, which is increasing thanks to new programs, such as the AW149 helicopter that will be produced in the country.
The Eurofighter is in service in five European and four Gulf countries. It is fully interoperable with legacy US platforms and provides modern air forces with a compelling strategic advantage in a combined multi-platform fleet.
Several nations are considering further aircraft acquisitions thanks to long-term investment in the program by Eurofighter customers.
The companies associated with the program, Airbus, BAE Systems, Leonardo, and the wider supply chain employ more than 100,000 qualified people across Europe.
