Malta signs for third AW139 search-and-rescue helicopter

The Armed Forces of Malta (AFM) is to exercise its option for a third AgustaWestland AW139 search-and-rescue (SAR) and maritime patrol helicopter, national media reported on 7 July.

The government has signed a EUR14 million (USD15.4 million) contract for the helicopter, which will be financed by the European Borders Fund and Internal Security Fund.

The report in the Malta Independent newspaper did not reveal a proposed delivery date for the third helicopter.
