Airbus Military signs French A400M support contract

18th February 2013 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Airbus Military has announced that it has signed the initial In-Service Support (ISS) contract with OCCAR, acting on behalf of France, which will see the provision of an 18-month A400M support services package to the French Air Force. The ISS contract covers industrial on-base maintenance support, spares management, and extended query answering service.

The contract is a key milestone in preparation for the delivery of the first A400M to the French Air Force.  This contract provides a tailored service to meet the needs of the French Air Force building on the foundations laid by the A400M Launch Contract between OCCAR (acting on behalf of France, Turkey, the UK, Germany, Spain, Belgium and Luxemburg) and Airbus Military, which already foresees Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) services such as Technical Documentation, Aerospace Ground Equipment and the like.

According to the company, in preparation of the period following the initial 18 months ISS package, Airbus Military provided a joint French/UK ISS proposal in November for a further support arrangement. The offer is currently under discussion with an agreement expected during the second half of 2013.
