Singapore City [Singapore], Feb.6 (ANI): The Indian Navy will purchase 12 aircraft from American aircraft manufacturer Boeing by 2020.

This was revealed by Steve Tripp, Senior Manager, P-8 A international Global Marketing and and sales of the Boeing company on the sidelines of the Singapore Air Show.

Tripp said the twelve aircraft will be delivered to Indian Navy by 2020 as agreed in the terms of contract signed earlier years.
