Mexican navy orders two more Airbus Military C295 transports
Announced on 29 October, the new aircraft will add to the navy’s fleet of Airbus Military transport aircraft, which includes six CN235s and two C212s in addition to the C295s.
The navy will operate the new aircraft for military, civil and humanitarian missions.
The Mexican air force operates six C295s, with four more on order, all of which are expected to be delivered by mid-2014.
Two CN235s are also operated by the federal police in Mexico, making the nation the largest Airbus Defence and Space customer in Latin America.
In May, Mexico carried out an evaluation of the company’s A400M tactical transport in country. A “Grizzly” was flown to Mexico City International airport and carried out a series of demonstrations.
