The Air China Cargo and Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW) top management met in China earlier this week, and the companies closed a firm contract for eight A330P2F conversion solutions.

"All A330 conversion candidate aircraft are owned by Air China Cargo. As the belly cargo capacity of all Air China passenger aircraft is exclusively operated by Air China Cargo, the airline, which is the only cargo airline operating with the national flag, could gain extensive experience on running Airbus aircraft for cargo," says a LinkedIn post by EFW.

“To enforce our freighter fleet by Airbus conversion freighter was a natural step,” says Hongyan Wang, Vice President, Air China.

The first A330 aircraft was inducted at conversion partner Ameco Beijing in Q12023, and is scheduled for redelivery by the end of 2023. A second aircraft has also been inducted, the post added.

“We are glad that Air China Cargo will operate, for the first time, an Airbus freighter, and we are looking forward to seeing an A330P2F with the Air China Cargo livery soon,” says Jordi Boto, CEO, EFW.
