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 operations in 1997. It is the only private Turkish company offering international cargo flight services to/from Germany, UK, Netherlands, Italy, France, Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt and Algeria.
