STOCKHOLM - Saab has signed a contract with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) for product support and maintenance of the Swedish Navy’s underwater weapon systems.

The contract enables FMV to place orders for product support and maintenance of underwater weapon systems during the period 2017-2019, up to a total value of SEK 236 million ($26.2 million). The contract comes under the terms of the Letter of Intent (LoI) between Saab and FMV that was announced on June 9, 2014. The LoI supports the Swedish Armed Forces’ underwater capabilities for the period 2015-2024.

"This contract secures the availability of operational weapon systems for the Swedish Navy. We will plan for and conduct necessary measures to keep the systems ready whenever the customer needs," said Anne-Marie Vösu, head of business unit Underwater Systems within Saab business area Dynamics.

"The contract is a proof of the customer’s trust in our knowledge and expertise within the underwater domain, and it is an important foundation for our continuing business," said Vosu.

TOULOUSE, France - Air Caraïbes has taken delivery of a new Airbus A350-900, the first French airline to operate the type. The aircraft, leased from AerCap, was delivered during a ceremony held at the Airbus Delivery Center in Toulouse on February 28. It will take off at 14:00 heading for Paris Orly Sud before embarking on its first commercial flight to Pointe-a-Pitre and Fort-de-France on March 2.

Air Caraïbes plans to operate its A350 XWB alongside the A330s it already has in service on its Paris/Caribbean routes. This A350-900 can accommodate 389 passengers in a three-class configuration (18 in Business, 45 in Premium Economy and 326 in Economy). The "Airspace by Airbus" cabin, combined with its new lighting system, reduces the effects of jet lag on long-haul flights, Airbus says.

To date, orders for 821 A350 XWBs have been placed with Airbus by 44 customers around the world, making this one of the most successful programs ever in the long-range aircraft segment.
