Turkmenistan Airlines places an order for two A330-200PTF freighters

Turkmenistan Airlines has ordered two Airbus A330-200 Passenger-To-Freighter converted aircraft, becoming a new Airbus customer.

The aircraft will be delivered in 2020.

A330P2F program is a collaboration between ST Engineering Aerospace, Airbus and Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH (EFW).

CDB Aviation, a wholly owned Irish subsidiary of China Development Bank Financial Leasing Co. Limited, entered into a new partnership with Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH to conduct the Passenger-to-Freighter (“P2F”) conversion of two Airbus A330-300 aircraft in 2021, which will be available for lease to airline customers from early 2022.

The A330-300 P2F conversion program marks CDB Aviation’s first entry into freighter conversion, advancing the lessor’s strategic efforts to deliver ever-more customized fleet solutions to customers, while tapping the long-term growth potential of the medium wide body freighter market. The A330 P2Fs are part of the existing fleet of 228 aircraft, in addition to the lessor’s further commitments for 150 in-demand, next-generation technology aircraft.
