Dassault CEO says in talks with India about more Rafale jets

TOULON, France, Sept 5 (Reuters) - The chief executive of Dassault Aviation on Tuesday said the company was still in discussions with India over the possible purchase of additional twin-engine Rafale fighter jets, on top of the 36 ones India ordered in 2016.

Eric Trappier told Reuters that a separate tender by India for a single-engine fighter jet was independent of the Rafale order and would not impact the negotiations.

“These are different projects,” Trappier said on the sidelines of a defence forum in the southern French city of Toulon. “We’re talking about additional jets. Nothing is decided, but we’re not going to stop at 36.” (Reporting by Cyril Altmeyer; Editing by Richard Lough and Ingrid Melander)
