Kazakhstan orders next two C295s
Airbus Military has signed a contract with Kazspecexport, a state company belonging to the Ministry of Defence of Kazakhstan, to supply two C295 military transport aircraft plus a related service and support package for spare parts and ground support equipment.
The order is part of the implementation of a memorandum of understanding signed in 2012 between Kazakhstan and Airbus Military for the procurement of eight C295s in total. Two of which have already been delivered in 2013.
The first two C295s are in service with the Kazakhstan Air Forces and the third and fourth are planned for delivery in 2014 and 2015 respectively. Airbus Military said the remaining four aircraft would follow a delivery schedule as yet to be decided.
‘Airbus Military is very proud that the Kazakhstan Ministry of Defence is placing a repeat order for the C295, confirming its confidence in the aircraft’s capabilities and cost-efficiency as well as in our company. We are proud of the relationship that has been created with Kazspecexport and the Ministry of Defence and congratulate the teams of both institutions on their professionalism in the process. We will keep striving to ensure that we live up to this mark of confidence and stand by our customer for many years to come,’ said Antonio Rodriguez Barberan, head of commercial, Airbus Military.
