The United Arab Emirates Air Force and Air Defence has ordered five Airbus C295 medium transport aircraft, Airbus Defence and Space announced on 15 November.

The aircraft will replace the UAE Air Force’s existing fleet of CN235s. Deliveries are set to begin in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Bernhard Brenner, head of marketing and sales, Airbus Defence and Space, said: ‘The C295 is a tough and reliable aircraft that is thoroughly proven in the Middle East operating environment.

‘Passing the milestone of 200 sales – now 203 following this order – is a clear demonstration of its widely recognised capabilities and excellent value. We look forward to placing many more C295s in this region and beyond.’
