Indications are that Flybe Chosen to Maintain Military A400M Fleet

Posted on July 9, 2014

(Reuters) – British regional airline Flybe (FLYB.L) has been selected for a contract to provide maintenance for Britain’s newest military transporter, the A400M, people familiar with the matter said.

The selection of Europe’s third-largest regional aircraft operator to provide support for Britain’s defence ministry comes after it beat competition from traditional military contractors and could be unveiled at next week’s Farnborough Airshow.

It is the second tie-up between an airline and Britain’s cash-pinched military in a week after a consortium supplying RAF Voyager jets, which have a dual role as passenger planes for military personnel and air tankers, agreed to lease one of the converted Airbus A330s to Thomas Cook Airlines
