Burkina Faso reinforces its military transport capabilities

Getafe, 11th Decem­ber 2019 – 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.

The C295 is adapt­ed to per­form in the harsh sub-Saha­ran Africa oper­at­ing envi­ron­ment. Togeth­er with its afford­able main­te­nance and oper­a­tional costs, the C295 is the per­fect match for the cli­mat­ic con­di­tions of Burk­i­na Faso.

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.”
