The only A400M transport aircraft ordered by Luxembourg became the property of the Luxembourg Armed Forces on 10th August 2020, though the aircraft will initially remain in Seville for the installation of special instruments according to the requirements of the Luxembourg and Belgian Armed Forces. The aircraft is scheduled to be delivered in mid-October while delivery of the first two A400Ms for Belgium is planned for the near future. Luxembourg and Belgium intend to operate their total of eight A400Ms jointly from the Luxembourg/Belgian Vliegbasis Melsbroek base in Belgium. The Luxembourg aircraft, with serial number MSN104, will fly under the military designation CT-01 and the Belgian aircraft will be designated CT-02 to CT08. Luxembourg and Belgium are the last A400M customer nations to receive an A400M.
