Bangladesh buys C295W
Bangladesh has become the latest nation to acquire the Airbus C295W medium airlifter with an order for a single aircraft for Bangladesh Army Aviation.
The aircraft, in transport configuration, will be delivered in the second half of 2017 under a contract that also includes customer support and training.
Airbus Defence and Space’s Head of Marketing and Sales, Jean-Pierre Talamoni said: "The C295W will markedly increase the transport capability of Bangladesh Army Aviation."
The C295W is qualified for the transport of troops and bulky/palletized cargo, para-trooping and medical evacuation. It is the first multi-engine fixed-wing aircraft to be operated by Bangladesh Army Aviation.
The C295W is part of the Airbus Defence and Space family of light and medium airlifters which also includes the earlier C212 and smaller CN235 platforms.
