The Kazakhstan Air Force is apparently very happy with the Airbus C295. With Summer on the horizon the Asian country ordered another two of these light medium-haul airlifters from the European aircraft giant.
The agreement, which includes a spares and support package, covers the final two aircraft included in a memorandum of understanding signed in 2012. Both aircraft will be delivered in the second half of this year and will take the Kazakhstan Air Defence Forces’ C295 fleet to eight.
Two C295 were already delivered in 2013, number three came in 2014, four in 2015, with five and six delivered after that.
