United Arab Emirates orders the A330 MRTT air to air refuelling aircraft from EADS
Following the contracts signed with the Royal Australian Air Force, Saudi Arabia and after being selected as preferred bidder for the Future Stategic Tanker Aircraft (FSTA) in the UK, the UAE decision consolidates further the A330 MRTT position as the most advanced and capable air-to-air refuelling aircraft available in the market. The Military Transport Aircraft Division of EADS, responsible for the design and production of the MRTTs, is positioned as the key worldwide supplier in the field of tanking and transport aircraft.
"Nothing speaks louder than success. The fourth selection in a row of the A330 MRTT in international competitive processes underscores its exceptional value and capability for the full range of tanker and transport requirements," said Carlos Suarez, Head of EADS Military Transport Aircraft Division and Chairman of EADS Casa.
