Information on aircraft sales and gifting from December 2016 to December 2018 is provided in the tables below. Further information outside of these dates could only be provided at disproportionate cost. Additionally, I am also withholding information on prices, costs and revenues, as disclosure would prejudice commercial interests as well as relations between the United Kingdom and other states.
