MNG Airlines has entered into a contract with Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH (EFW), joint venture of ST Engineering and Airbus, for the Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversion of two Airbus A330-300 aircraft. The first A330 aircraft was inducted for conversion on 1 April, while conversion for the second aircraft will commence in 2022. Conversions will be carried out at EFW’s facility in Dresden, Germany.

With these two A330-300P2F conversion freighters, MNG Airlines will add further capacity to its network, complementing its current Airbus aircraft fleet of four converted A300-600RF and one factory-produced A330-200F. The A330-300P2F provides best-in-class versatility and about 23% more volume than its closest competitor Boeing 767-300ER. Depending on the weight variants, the conversion freighter can offer a gross payload of up to 63 tonnes per flight and a range capability of up to 3600nm.
MNG Airlines started its activities in 1996, serving customers in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Depending on customers’ needs, MNG Airlines is able to carry both express and general cargo.
