The twin-turboprop type will be primarily used for domestic transport and humanitarian relief missions, the European manufacturer said.

This C-295 is the first Airbus Military product that the Ghana air force will operate. The service also currently uses three Fokker F27 transports, as listed in Flightglobal's MiliCAS database.
