November 17, 2017: Airbus has received order for five C295 medium transport aircraft from the United Arab Emirates Air Force & Air Defence.
The aircraft will serve with the UAE Air Force replacing the existing CN235s still in operation. Deliveries will begin in the fourth quarter of 2018.
Bernhard Brenner, Airbus Defence and Space Head of Marketing & Sales said, “The C295 is a tough and reliable aircraft that is thoroughly proven in the Middle East operating environment. Passing the milestone of 200 sales – now 203 following this order – is a clear demonstration of its widely recognized capabilities and excellent value. We look forward to placing many more C295s in this region and beyond.”
