Egypt signs on for more C295 aircraft

Egypt signs on for more C295 aircraft

Airbus Military has confirmed that the Egyptian Air Force will receive a further six new C295 transport aircraft under a new order announced on 16 January.

This order will bring the Egyptian Air Force’s C295 fleet to a total of 12 aircraft.

This is the third batch of the airlifters ordered by the force, and also includes associated spares and support equipment, training and field support. It brings the total number of C295 sold worldwide by the company to 121.

According to Airbus Military, the Egyptian Air Force selected the C295 ‘because of its proven versatility, robustness and efficiency for its daily transport missions combined with the ease of maintenance and low cost of operations’.

Antonio Rodríguez Barberán, Airbus Military senior VP commercial, said: ‘A repeat order from a loyal customer is extremely valued by Airbus Military and the trust that the Ministry of Defence of Egypt is placing in us confirms that we offer a product that responds to our customer’s needs. We will ensure that we live up to this mark of confidence and stand by our customer as a trusted partner for many years to come. The C295 is exactly the kind of workhorse required for current and future airlift missions, and the most cost-efficient complement to heavy transport aircraft.’
