On Dec. 11, 2019 Airbus annunced that the Ministry of Defence of Burkina Faso has placed a firm order for one Airbus C295 military airlifter.

As part of its 2018-2022 Military Acquisition Law, the Burkina Faso Air Force will reinforce its military transport capabilities by joining the family of Airbus C295 operators.

According to Airbus, the C295 is the perfect match for the climatic conditions of Burkina Faso. The aircraft will have to operate in the harsh sub-Saharan Africa operating environment.

Bernhard Brenner, Head of Marketing and Sales for Airbus Defence and Space, said: “We are very proud to see that with Algeria, Egypt, Ghana, Mali, Ivory Coast and now Burkina Faso, the C295 is becoming the 21st Century’s standard tactical airlifter in Africa, with 36 aircraft operating in the region.”

This new order confirms the sales success of the Airbus transport aircraft, Burkina Fasu becomes the 30th user of the C295. Furthermore, India could soon be added to the long list of customers. According to the head of Airbus marketing at the Dubai Airshow 2019, the nation appears to be ready to buy 56 C295s.
