The first Airbus Military A330 MRTT (Multi Role Tanker Transport) for the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) has successfully completed its maiden flight said the company in a statement released today.

The second RSAF aircraft is already in conversion at the company’s Getafe site ( near Madrid, Spain) and the third will begin the process in mid-year.

Prior to this flight, five A330 MRTTs had already flown. Those include three for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), and two for the UK Royal Air Force (RAF). Two of the aircraft are already technically complete and ready for delivery to the RAAF in Getafe, pending finalisation of contractual discussion.
