A400M Transport Aircraft

Airbus Defence & Space has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with an Indonesian Pelita Air Services for Jakarta’s possible acquisition of the A400M transport aircraft.

The LOI was signed with Pelita Air Services, which represents a consortium of companies involved in aerospace, Airbus said in an email to FlightGlobal today.

The LOI sets the stage for discussions about topics such as the number of aircraft Jakarta could acquire and local industrial participation. Airbus has long been interested in selling the A400M to Indonesia.

In 2012, the company collaborated with Indonesian state airframer Indonesian Aerospace (IAe, also known as Dirgantara Indonesia) about possible workshare on the A400M.
