Airbus A330-200 Freighters for two of the initial operators are undergoing flight-testing in Toulouse. Etihad's Crystal Cargo division will be the first customer to receive the newly certificated freighter variant, later this summer. Before delivery, this A330-200F is expected to be displayed at the Farnborough air show. Meanwhile, the first of three A330-200Fs that Hong Kong Airlines is leasing from US lessor Aircastle is undergoing testing and is due for delivery later this year. Both of the new 70t payload freighters are powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines.
