Dubai 2021: UAE Orders Two Additional A330 MRTT

UAEAF&AD Fleet Grows to Five Aircraft

The United Arab Emirates Air Force & Air Defence (UAEAF&AD) has formally ordered two additional Airbus A330 Multirole Tanker Transport (MRTT) aircraft, increasing the country’s MRTT fleet to five, the company announced on 14 November at the Dubai Airshow.

“Since its entry into service in 2013 with the UAE Air Force, the A330 MRTT has delivered much more than initially expected, meeting our customer’s operational needs. This repeat order, added to the growing MRTT customer base, confirms the suitability of our platform as the world’s tanker of reference,” commented Bernhard Brenner, EVP Marketing and Sales at Airbus Defence and Space.

The A330 MRTT combines the advanced technology of a new-generation tanker with the operational experience established over more than 250,000 in-service flight hours. It is interoperable with receivers worldwide, and delivers true multi-role capability, proven most recently in MEDEVAC and strategic transport missions during the COVID-19 crisis.
