This November is confirmed as a successful month for the Airbus tanker aircraft. Following the order from Spain, the United Arab Emirates also ordered additional A330 MRTTs, increasing the fleet to five aircraft.

With deliveries starting in 2024, the UAE agreement will also cover the upgrade of the country’s current A330MRTT fleet to the latest enhanced version.

‘Since its entry into service in 2013 with the UAE Air Force, the A330 MRTT has delivered much more than initially expected, meeting our customer’s operational needs. This repeat order, added to the growing MRTT customer base, confirms the suitability of our platform as the world’s tanker of reference’, said Bernhard Brenner, Executive Vice President Marketing and Sales at Airbus Defence and Space.
