Belgium will receive seven A400M transport aircraft from Airbus between 2020 and 2023. The aircraft are part of the contract signed by Belgium in 2001 to replace the aging C-130s.
The A400M Belgo-Luxembourg will be delivered between 2020 and 2023, Belgium ministry of defense said in a statement Monday.
The different parts of the plane are produced on different sites. The fuselage is built in Bremen in Germany and Ankara in Turkey, the wings in Filton in the United Kingdom, the nose in Saint-Nazaire in France and the empennage in Stade in Germany. The engine components are also produced in various locations before being assembled and tested in Munich, Germany.
Belgium also plays a role in the production chain with the manufacture of certain equipment such as the leading edges and the doors of the landing gear. Everything then converges on the final assembly site in Seville, Spain. Some 24 months elapse between the production of the first parts and the delivery of the aircraft to the customer.
In its final configuration, the A400M will play an important role in the capacity of European military air transport. 15 Wing Air Transport will operate our aircraft as well as a Luxembourg Melsbroek aircraft, the statement read.
