Saudi Arabia has placed its first A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport into operational service with this new-generation aircraft’s formal acceptance into the Royal Saudi Air Force fleet. The clearance was given by Deputy Minister of Defense Prince Khaled bin Sultan during a dedication ceremony held earlier in the week at Riyadh Airbase. This A330 MRTT is the first of a three-aircraft batch contractually delivered to Saudi Arabia by Airbus Military, and it will be deployed to refuel Royal Saudi Air Force fighter jets, including the F-15, Typhoon and Tornado.
