EgyptAir Cargo has taken delivery of the first Airbus A330-200 to be converted from passenger to freighter configuration.
German conversion specialist Elbe Flugzeugwerke says the twinjet completed flight tests in June, and that the European Aviation Safety Agency and Egyptian civil aviation authority granted supplemental type certificates for the modification in July.
Having established a P2F programme for the A330 family, EFW – a joint venture between majority shareholder ST Engineering Aerospace and Airbus – last year delivered the first A330-300 conversion freighter to DHL.
Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that EgyptAir Cargo's aircraft (MSN 600) was delivered from Airbus to the Middle Eastern carrier in 2004 and had been in passenger service until 2017. It is powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700s.
EgyptAir has ordered three A330-200 P2Fs, says EFW.
