Austria’s Eurofighter Typhoons will be secured at World Economic Forum 2015, held from 21 to 24 January in Davos at Switzerland.

The aircraft are supporting the airspace surveillance operation "Daedalus 2015" in Austria, contributing to the security of this conference, according to company press release.

Alberto Gutierrez, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Eurofighter said, "Eurofighter Typhoons do not only ensure the daily air surveillance in Austria, but also complement the security arrangements for this high-ranking international conference in Switzerland”.

“They stand ready day by day to secure the airspace of our worldwide customers. We are proud that Eurofighter Typhoons can demonstrate their capabilities in case of airspace violations." Gutierrez added.

All 15 Eurofighter Typhoons stationed in Zeltweg in Styria, have undergone an upgrade programme in 2013. They have been equipped with an enhanced hardware and software so that they conform to the latest capability standard for Tranche 1 aircraft.

Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft are used for Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) with six customers (Germany, UK, Italy, Spain, Austria, Saudi Arabia) seven days a week around the clock.
