Morawiecki made this significant announcement during his visit to the PZL-Świdnik helicopter production facility, located in the southeastern town of Świdnik, on Friday. In his remarks, he highlighted Poland’s existing contract for 32 multi-role AW-149 helicopters with the same manufacturing plant. However, he indicated the government’s intentions to potentially expand this collaboration by placing an order for AW-101 helicopters from PZL-Świdnik.

“We are also dedicated to securing new contracts, a substantial one for the AW-101,” Morawiecki asserted. He further disclosed that the proposed order could encompass approximately 20 to 21 units of the AW-101 model. Expressing his unwavering commitment to the endeavor, he vowed, “I will do everything possible to see this contract through.”
