Emmanuel Anassis, Chairman of DAC Aviation said: "The first C295 aircraft has proven very successful in handling the austere environments under which DAC operates on a daily basis, and we are now very pleased to add a second C295 in support of our vital operations."

David Butler, Group Chief Executive Officer, Stellwagen Group, said: "We are delighted to deliver the second C295 to DAC Aviation which provides essential life-saving humanitarian support. The initial Airbus C295 has proven a great success and we are fully confident that this second delivery will add as much value."

The Airbus C295 is ideal for humanitarian assistance organisations, due to its performance and capabilities, especially its ability to take off and land over short distances and from unimproved surfaces.
