Airbus has delivered the first production example of its winglet-equipped C295 medium transport, which will benefit from extended-range performance and also give operators a 4% increase in fuel efficiency.
Flown from Airbus ’s Seville final assembly site in Spain, the Mexican navy C295W carries the registration ANX-1524. It is the first of two aircraft included in a follow-on order for the service announced by the manufacturer last October. The pair will join four C295 transports.
Winglets will be standard for all new C295s delivered from now on”. flightglobal
