Airbus has delivered the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s (RSAF) first A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) aircraft, the company announced on 3 September.

The delivery is the part of Airbus' 2014 contract to deliver six A330 MRTTs to the RSAF. This fleet of MRTTs will replace the four KC-135 Stratotankers currently in service.

The new-generation A330 MRTT will extend the endurance of the RSAF’s fighter aircraft and ensure the service’s continued ability to provide air-to-air refuelling support. It will also provide the RSAF with greater cargo and passenger transport capabilities, and enhance its ability to contribute to international humanitarian assistance and disaster relief and peace support operations.
