The A400M has flown a single mission over the Channel in support of the Border Force on 10 August. The individual cost of this sortie has not been captured as a pre-programmed training sortie was utilised to complete this task, the costs of which are covered within Air Command's Annual Budget total and there were therefore no additional costs to Defence.
