Poland’s Defence Ministry announced on Friday it had selected the U.S.-made Gulfstream G550 jet as a "small plane" for the country’s VIPs.

The jet, offered by American corporation General Dynamics, will carry a price tag of around PLN 450 million, the country’s deputy Defence Minister Bartosz Kownacki told reporters on Friday.

The first of the jets ordered by Poland will probably be delivered by the end of summer next year, Kownacki said.

According to Kownacki, two suitors submitted bids in the tender: France’s Dassault Aviation and General Dynamics. (PAP)
