The Colombian Air Force has added another Airbus Military C295 to its order of five aircraft.
The aircraft will primarily be used on military transport and humanitarian aid duties.
Since receiving its first C295 in 2008 the CAF has steadily increased its fleet of the type and now operates four with two more to be delivered. It also operates six Airbus Military CN235-200s and six of the smaller C212.
This latest order brings the number of Airbus Military C295s and CN235s sold this year to 32 and takes total C295 orders to 115, with 93 currently in operation in 15 countries.
