Airbus to continue support for RAAF C-130Js
Airbus has received an AUD$175 million contract extension to continue providing through life support (TLS) services for the Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF's) fleet of C-130J Hercules transport aircraft.
Originally signed in March 2009, the contract is structured as a six-year rolling agreement, which is now extended by an additional two years to 2024.
Under the contract, Airbus will provide sustainment services for the aircraft including engineering, maintenance and supply support.
RAAF No 37 Squadron operates 12 C-130J Hercules from RAAF Base Richmond, New South Wales.
Rob Elder, acting managing director, Airbus Australia Pacific, said: ‘The C-130J TLS contract extension is the best recognition we can receive from our customer, and will ensure long-term employment opportunities for our people in the technical and professional disciplines as we support the C-130J to fly, to succeed and to come home safely, every time.’
