Paris Air Show 2015: Saudi Arabia Orders Four Airbus C295W

The Ministry of Interior of Saudi Arabia has purchased in open competition, and after carrying out a complete evaluation, four Airbus C295W aircraft to enhance its capabilities. The C295W has been chosen based on its demonstrated excellent operational capabilities in hot and severe conditions and its proven affordable maintenance and operational costs.

"We are very proud that the C295W is joining the Airbus A330 MRTT Multi-Role Tanker Transport and CN235 transports previously ordered by Saudi Arabia," said Antonio Rodríguez Barberán, Head of Commercial for Military Aircraft. "We greatly appreciate the confidence shown in the C295W by a nation with long expertise in operating military aircraft in desert conditions."

Together with the previous orders received from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan and Oman, this new order from Saudi Arabia cements the C295’s position as one of the market-leading medium transport and patrol aircraft in the Middle East and North Africa region.
