The British government is proposing to procure two new aircraft to fly ministers and the royal family, including one Boeing 737-sized aircraft and a smaller business jet. These aircraft would replace the BAe 146s and HS 125s currently flown by No.32 (The Royal) Squadron from late 2007/early 2008. The new aircraft would cost about UKP1.5 million a year more than current arrangements. The No.32 Squadron fleet has been increasingly used by government ministers in recent years.
