The Royal Netherlands Air Force has received the USA Aviation Week magazine laureate prize for its efforts in leading the creation of a Multinational Fleet of eight Airbus A330 MRTT tanker/transports to improve the interoperability and boost the capability of European air forces.
An SLA was signed between OCCAR and the NSPA already in 2014 to benefit from NSPA’s logistic support capabilities in accordance with the Aerospace and Defense Specification 2000M (ASD S2000M).
The fourth amendment recently signed NSPA provides an extension of the services for another 3 years (2019-2021).
Airbus has for the first time formally delivered two A400M new generation airlifters to two different nations in one day. The company handed over the aircraft on 20 March to the European Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation (OCCAR), in charge of the management of the A400M Programme, representing Germany and France – at a ceremony in Seville, Spain.
