Airbus announced Monday that the Mexican Navy (Semar) has received the first Airbus C295 medium transport aircraft equipped with winglets.

C295W will be able to transport more payloads to a longer distance with around a 4% fuel savings, even in hot and high conditions.

The Mexican Navy has specified the winglets for two C295s, for which the order was already announced, and winglets will be standard for all new C295s ordered from now on.

“The C295 has served us well for many years. We had some concerns about operating a mixed fleet of aircraft with and without winglets, but when we studied the enhanced performance of this new version it was clear that it would bring significant operating benefits for us that could not be ignored”, said Rear Admiral from Mexican Navy, José María García Macedo.
