Negotiations between the Minister of Industry and Infrastructure Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan Beibut Atamkulov with the vice president of AIRBUS Alberto Gutierrez ended with the signing of a contract for the purchase of two A400M aircrafts for the needs of the Ministry of Defense of Kazakhstan, Delovoy Kazakhstan reports.
The Airbus A400M heavy-lift military transport aircraft is capable of performing military, civilian humanitarian air transportation missions, and is effective for organising a rapid response in emergency situations.
The contract to supply Airbus A400M includes an array of services for personnel training and technical support.
The delivery of the first aircraft is scheduled for 2024. Kazakhstan becomes the world’s ninth country to use this type of aircraft, along with Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Turkey, Belgium, Malaysia and Luxembourg.
The participants of the meeting also discussed the course of preparation for the establishment of a Service and Repair Centre for military and civil AIRBUS aircrafts at the Kazakhstan Aviation Industry LLP base. Following the talks, the parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation.
“Cooperation with AIRBUS and the creation in Kazakhstan of a certified Service and Repair Centre for military and civil aircrafts produced by AIRBUS is a large-scale and mutually beneficial project with long-term prospects. The service centre will be able to cover the entire Central Asian region”, Beibut Atamkulov noted.
AIRBUS D&S specialists are expected to arrive in September this year to conduct a technical audit of the capabilities of Kazakhstan Aviation Industry LLP.
The A400M is the most versatile aircraft available today, which meets the most diverse needs of the global air force and other organisations in the 21st century. It can perform three very different types of tasks: tactical airlift missions, strategic airlift missions, and serve as a "tanker". Equipped with four unique Europrop International (EPI) TP400 turboprop engines operating in opposite directions, the A400M offers a wide flight range in both speed and altitude. It is the ideal aircraft to meet the diverse requirements of countries in terms of military and humanitarian missions for the benefit of society.
