Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH (EFW), center of excellence for Airbus Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversions and joint venture by ST Engineering and Airbus, has just redelivered the 50th passenger-to-freighter (P2F) converted aircraft of its new generation Airbus P2F family program.
The P2F aircraft, an A330-300P2F, was redelivered from EFW’s facility in Dresden to A330P2F launch customer DHL, and is scheduled to join the DHL freighter fleet in Asia.
“Airbus freighter conversions are being increasingly considered as the preferred next-generation platforms,” said Jeffrey Lam, President of Commercial Aerospace at ST Engineering.
“In fact, customers value our Airbus P2F solutions and are planning for more converted aircraft to join their fleets. We are committed to redelivering the safest products at the highest quality to meet customers’ expectations, and I look forward to our next P2F redelivery milestone very soon.”
“This marks a huge milestone for EFW and us shareholders, made possible by the dedication and commitment of EFW colleagues, our customers and partners”, said Andreas Hermann, Airbus SVP Commercial & International Operations and EFW Board Member.
“We look forward to continuing to support EFW in delivering some of the greatest products and services across the Airbus product range.”
EFW’s P2F conversion programs were developed in collaboration with ST Engineering and Airbus, with EFW holding the Supplemental Type Certificates and leading in the overall program.
