Two Airbus A400M for Indonesia
Indonesia’s ministry of defence has placed an order for two Airbus A400M aircraft in multirole tanker and transport configuration. The contract, effective in 2022, will bring the total number of A400M operators to ten nations.
The agreement includes a complete maintenance and training support package. A letter of intent was also signed for the future acquisition of four additional A400M aircraft.
”This new order will further expand the A400M footprint in the Asia-Pacific region. The A400M offers outstanding capabilities to Indonesia, providing its air force with the perfect platform to deliver large and heavy loads into remote areas and multiplying its airpower projection thanks to reliable aerial refuelling capabilities,” said Michael Schoellhorn, CEO of Airbus defence and space.
