Spain orders A330, C295MPA and H135 with Airbus

Post by michel N »

To support Airbus and to strengthen the Spanish aviation industries, Spain placed a number of orders with Airbus:
3 Airbus A330 to be converted to MRTT
36 H135, to be increased to 59 in the second phase, primarily for law enforcement and Government agencies
4 C295MPA
4 H160

Also extra funding for the A400M and NH90 programmes have been made available.

(So that’s where the EU corona funding is used for...)

Can't disagree with that.

The extra funding for the A400 and NH90 means the original order for 27 A400 ( and not just 13) and 45 NH90 is taken on. The way I read this (!?)

I think it was not the best translation I did there, it looks more like they put payments for the programma forward, so the company has a better cash position. So no extra aircraft the way I read it. Just earlier payments for the NH90 and A400.

In some way glad they buy their own MRTT's and don't join the multi-bunch; gives some distinct colours in the greyish European tanker community (Britts included) apart from the AdlA...

Can't say I think EU funding has always been put to use in places intended for (I.e. a certain Greek railway project anybody who has ever driven to Araxos or Andravida has been able to see) but on the other hand: taxpayers all get taken from behind, no matter which currency the use or have used in the past :wink:
