ST Engineering, Airbus, and their joint venture Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW) have redelivered an A321 passenger-to-freighter (P2F) aircraft to BBAM Limited Partnership (BBAM), a leading aircraft lease management company. This is the first A321P2F redelivery made to BBAM, with several more units to come as contracted with EFW. This first BBAM A321 converted freighter will be leased to British charter airline, Titan Airways.
The A321P2F is the first in its size category to offer containerized loading in both the main (up to 14 full container positions) and lower deck (up to 10 container positions). EFW’s A321P2F solution has a generous and proven gross payload of over 28 metric tons, with further upside potential in future conversions. The solution, which comes with optimized weight distribution to enable empty flights and random loading, accords high flexibility for operators, in particular express carriers. The fact that EFW’s program is the only OEM solution for A321P2F in the market also ensures lifecycle value, given its superiority in quality, reliability, and ease of maintenance.Email Post to a Friend
