A400M promoted for disaster relief missions
At the ILA in Berlin, Airbus Group once again tried to promote the A400M for humanitarian missions.
Airbus had invited experts from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to brief journalists on the possiblities. Also, an exhibit was staged to explain the advantages the aircraft would bring to relief organisations in the immediate aftermath of humanitarian disasters. The A400M formed part of a static display together with German Red Cross and the Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) vehicles.
