Press Release - Eurofighter Typhoon Joins New Danish Fighter Competition
The Eurofighter programme has strong reliability in terms of delivery and price. The aircraft itself is an effective, proven and trusted weapon system.
A decision in favour of Eurofighter Typhoon would be a long-term investment into Denmark’s security and defence. Selecting Eurofighter Typhoon which is fully NATO-compatible would lead to reduced costs for Denmark with respect to logistics, training and interoperability during coalition missions.
Since entry into service in 2004, more than 350 Eurofighter Typhoons have been delivered to six nations: Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Austria and Saudi Arabia. In December 2012, Oman became the seventh customer and ordered a total of twelve aircraft. Currently, Eurofighter Typhoon is in service at 20 operational units and up to now, the whole fleet has completed about 170,000 flying hours worldwide.
