Lufthansa Cargo announced the arrival of its third A321F, which took its first flight "on our routing from Malta to Milan, and was welcomed by our customers and colleagues on site," says a LinkedIn post.

The A321 was based in Singapore over several months, and underwent conversion from passenger to freighter aircraft, a so-called A321P2F (passenger to freighter version), the post added. "Now, 14 pallet and container positions are available to our customers in the main deck and 10 in the lower deck. This results in a total payload of 28 tonnes with a range of 3,500 kilometres. The transfer flight from Singapore took the aircraft via Bangkok, Muscat, Larnaca, and Munich."

The aircraft with the registration D-AEUI and name Dia dhuit Ireland will join two A321F freighters - Merhaba Türkiye and Hello Europe - and will contribute to the expansion of e-commerce offering in the European route network.

“This route is one of our shortest freighter routes but of great value for Malta as it opens up new markets to the small island," says Antonio Di Martino, Director, Sales & Handling Italy & Malta, Lufthansa Cargo. "After two months of frequencies, we are pleased with the development and see a lot of vulnerable and dangerous goods but also live animals on this routing. We are glad our A321F fleet is getting stronger with an additional aircraft.”

Elbe Flugzeugwerke, Airbus and ST Engineering San Antonio Aerospace were responsible for the technical implementation, the update added.
