Appreciate air-to-air refuelling of Su-30MKI aircraft by UAE Air Force: IAF

NEW DELHI (PTI): The UAE Air Force's aircraft on Friday, June 24, conducted air-to-air refuelling of IAF's Su-30MKI fighter jets so that they could operate their non-stop flight to Egypt, an official statement said.

"IAF (Indian Air Force) deeply appreciates the in-flight refuelling provided by UAE Air Force MRTT (multi-role tanker transport) aircraft which assisted the IAF Su-30MKI formation to seamlessly undertake nearly 6 hours non-stop ferry while proceeding to Egypt for the Tactical Leadership Program," the IAF tweeted.

In the last few years, India's ties with the UAE have witnessed a major upswing.

The UAE Air Force had provided mid-air refuelling to a number of Rafale fighter jets on their journey from France to India. India is procuring 36 Rafale jets from France out of which 33 have already been delivered.
