World-leading strategic air-to-air refuelling and transport aircraft, provided by AirTanker

A Force Multiplier

AirTanker’s A330 Multi Role Tanker Transports (MRTT) are 21st century, highly capable and reliable military aircraft, able to perform three different missions simultaneously: air-to-air refuelling (AAR), passenger and cargo transport, and aeromedical evacuation.

The aircraft offer unrivalled range, payload and efficiency with advanced, modern technology to provide a state-of-the art AAR and strategic airlift capability. Already in service with the RAF, and provided by AirTanker, the Voyager offers a step-change in capability, picking-up roles previously performed by the legendary VC10 and TriStar.

World-leaders in A330 MRTT operation

Chosen in 2008 to provide the Future Strategic Tanker Aircraft (FSTA) to the RAF, AirTanker assumes responsibility for all aspects of the safe, efficient and reliable Voyager service, from training, operations and planning, to maintenance of the aircraft, all throughout the 27 year contract.

The service provided by AirTanker underpins the RAF’s strategic and tactical operation of the aircraft. We have responsibility for aircraft delivery and everything that goes into Voyager’s safe and reliable operation from crew training through to dispatch.

The A330: a firm foundation

The A330 MRTT is a military derivative of the medium to long-range, twin engine, widebody Airbus A330. With over 1,000 airframes sold, the aircraft is proven in its performance, reliability and safety, whilst providing commonality with spares and support around the globe.

Equipped with a vast 111-tonne fuel capacity, the A330-200 stands out as a natural tanker aircraft, doing so without compromising space to carry passengers and cargo.
