Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to classify holomorphic principal fibre bundles which admit a smooth section (i.e. are real product bundles). This is accomplished if the structure group is solvable of type (E). In the general case, a sufficient condition is obtained for a real product bundle to be equivalent to the complex product bundle. A necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of a holomorphic connection on a real product bundle is also obtained. Using this criterion in the case where the structure group is abelian, a generalization of a theorem due to Atiyah (in the case the structure group is $ {C^ \ast }$) is obtained.
