Airbus Military to exhibit complete product family at Dubai Airshow

First time A400M appears publicly in Gulf region

Madrid13 November 2013

Airbus Military will exhibit the A400M new generation airlifter, A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport, and C295 medium transport and surveillance aircraft at the Dubai Airshow, to be held at Dubai World Central, 17-21 November.

The show is the first time that the A400M will be displayed in the Gulf, reflecting the company’s strong belief in the importance of the event and in the A400M’s outstanding suitability for the air forces of the region.

All three aircraft will be in the static park and can be visited by arrangement, and the A400M will perform in the flying display every day of the show.

The A330 MRTT, the world’s most advanced aerial tanker, is one of three operated by the UAE Air Force and Air Defence.

Additionally, an Airbus Military C295 medium transport of the Royal Air Force of Oman will be on static display throughout the show. More than 20% of all C295 orders have come from the Middle East and North Africa and the aircraft, as well as the smaller CN235, is well proven in the operating conditions of the region.

Airbus Military will hold a press briefing, open to all accredited media, at 11:00-11:45 on Monday 18 November in Exhibition Hall Press Conference Room 3, immediately following the Airbus press conference.
