The Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH (EFW), centre of excellence for Airbus Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversions and Turkish Technic, a leading MRO company certified around the world as a Part 145 and Part 21 J&G organisation, have announced a new collaboration on A330P2F conversions.
The collaboration will see Turkish Technic becoming the first MRO company to provide third-party conversion solutions for the proven and technologically advanced A330P2F programme by EFW. The first A330P2F conversion for EFW is planned to be carried out at Turkish Technic’s facility in Istanbul in 3Q 2023.
EFW’s A330P2F programme is developed in collaboration with ST Engineering and Airbus, with EFW holding the supplemental type certificate and leading in the overall programme as well as marketing and sales efforts. The A330P2F programme comes with two variants – the A330-200P2F and A330-300P2F – which are both equipped with advanced technology that offers airlines additional operational and economic benefits. The A330-200P2F can carry a gross payload of up to 61 tonnes of weight to over 7,700 km, while the larger A330-300P2F can carry a gross payload of up to 63 tonnes and a containerised volume of up to ~18,581ft3 (~526m3).
