The Slovak Government Flying Service (SSG, Bratislava) has unveiled its EUR50 million (USD56.1 million) fleet renewal plan with three of its Soviet-era VIP jets to be replaced with more modern, Western-manufactured aircraft.

According to the Slovak Ministry of the Interior, the SGFS will replace its two Yak-40s with a pair of Fokker 100s acquired from Austria's MJet Aviation (MJF, Vienna) and its Tu-154M with an A319CJ acquired from Switzerland's Comlux Aviation (CLA, Zurich).

Once the acquisition has been completed, the aircraft will then be reconfigured in a VIP layout which will also feature specialized medical facilities.
