A total of five BelugaXLs are slated to enter into service later in 2019.

The new aircraft will gradually replace the BelugaST transporters.

The new BelugaXL is based on the A330-200 Freighter, with a large re-use of existing components and equipment.

The programme was launched in November 2014 to address the transport and ramp-up capacity requirements for Airbus beyond 2019.
