Brings Total Orders For C295 Over The 100 Mark
The Royal Air Force of Oman (RAFO) has signed a contract with Airbus Military for the acquisition of eight C295 aircraft, five of them configured as tactical transports and three as maritime patrol aircraft (MPA). They will be delivered from next year. Along with an upgrade of the tactical transport capability of the RAFO in hot and dusty conditions, the aircraft will enhance Oman´s ability to patrol its territorial waters and to conduct missions against piracy, illegal immigration and smuggling.
Oman becomes the first country of the Gulf Cooperation Council to order the C295. It is also the fourth customer to order the C295 in the MENA region and the first in the area to order the C295 for maritime patrol operations.
Two Airbus Military CN235 aircraft are already operated by the Royal Oman Police. “We are very proud of this new contract with Oman which demonstrates the satisfaction of our customer with our aircraft,” said Domingo Ureña Raso, CEO of Airbus Military. “This order underlines our leadership in this segment with over 100 orders. It confirms the excellent performance of the C295 in desert environments where its robustness and ability to cope with extreme heat are critical.”
This new deal means that 108 C295s have now been ordered, with 85 currently in operation with 13 countries. (C295 File Photo)
