Portugal’s Air Force Orders Five AW119Kx Multirole Helicopters


Leonardo recently announced that the Portuguese Ministry of Defence (MoD) has selected the AW119Kx as its new multirole single-engine helicopter to meet its future operational requirements. The Portuguese Air Force is set to take delivery of five aircraft with an option for a further two units. Deliveries are to start in late 2018 from Leonardo’s plant in Philadelphia, with completion of deliveries by early 2020. The contract awarded by the Portuguese MoD is valued in excess of €20 million. The AW119Kx helicopters will be used to perform a wide range of roles including training, MEDEVAC, troop transport, and short-range maritime search and rescue (SAR) and may be used for firefighting.


The AW119Kx was selected following a thorough and rigorous assessment of competing models, demonstrating that Leonardo’s solution was the best suited to meet the stringent requirements of the customer. This selection marks a further reinforcement of the long standing partnership between Leonardo and the Portuguese Ministry of Defence in the helicopter sector following the supply to the Air Force of AW101s for long range SAR, utility, personnel recovery and fishery protection missions and of Super Lynx aircraft (including a Mid-Life Upgrade) to the Portuguese Navy for maritime duties.
