BBAM and EFW announce new orders for Airbus A320/A321P2F conversions

BBAM Limited Partnership (BBAM), a world leader in aircraft leasing, and Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW), a joint venture of ST Engineering and Airbus, announced today an agreement for Airbus A320/A321 Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) orders including options. The new orders by BBAM bring the total number of its A320/A321P2F to no less than 20, with the conversions to be carried out by EFW through 2025. The agreement comes with the option to add new conversion slots every year starting in 2026.

In January this year, BBAM announced the delivery of the world’s first Airbus A321P2F on lease to Titan Airways.

The Airbus A320/A321P2F is a technological breakthrough given that it is the first in its size category to offer containerized loading in both the main deck (up to 14 full container positions) and lower deck (up to 10 container positions). EFW’s A320/A321P2F solution, which comes with optimized weight distribution to enable random loading even on empty flights, as well as a payload-range capability of more than 28 metric tons, accords high flexibility for operators, in particular express carriers. Being the only OEM solution for the Airbus A320/A321P2F conversion in the market also ensures that EFW’s program has greater lifecycle value and superiority in quality, reliability and ease of maintenance.
