Air China Cargo Receives First A330P2F Conversion of EFW from Ameco

The first A330 aircraft that was inducted at Elbe Flugzeugwerke’s (EFW) conversion partner Ameco’s Chengdu facility earlier this year has been delivered to customer Air China Cargo as per schedule. A second aircraft is currently undergoing conversion.

Earlier this year, EFW and Air China Cargo had closed a firm contract for EFW to redeliver eight A330P2F converted freighters.

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 experiences on operating Airbus aircraft for cargo. “To enforce our freighter fleet with Airbus converted freighters was a natural step,” said Hongyan Wang, Vice president of Air China.

“We are glad about the re-delivery and that Air China Cargo will operate Airbus converted freighters for the first time. We are looking forward to seeing soon an A330P2F with the Air China Cargo livery on its air freight mission,” said Jordi Boto, CEO of EFW.
