Egyptair Cargo has taken delivery of a A330-200 Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversion from Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH (EFW) - the joint venture between ST Engineering Aerospace and Airbus - following the successful completion of test flights in June and awarding of Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority (ECAA) in July.

The timely redelivery of MSN 600 is a result of cooperation between the partners EFW ST Engineering Aerospace and Airbus and the support by EASA, Launch Customer Egyptair and the ECAA. To date Egyptair Cargo has firm orders for three A330-200P2F units.

The A330P2F conversion programme, launched in 2012, is a collaboration between ST Engineering Aerospace, Airbus and their joint venture EFW. ST Engineering Aerospace, as the programme and technical lead for the engineering development phase, is responsible for applying for the STCs from EASA and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Airbus contributes to the programme with OEM data and certification support, while EFW leads the industrialisation phase as well as sales and marketing for the freighter conversion programme.

The re-delivery of the A330-200P2F marks the successful inauguration of the all new A330P2F family with the larger -300P2F being certified and delivered to Launch Customer DHL by end of 2017.

Both types are aimed at serving the international regional and medium range cargo and e-commerce express markets. The A330P2F can carry up to 61 metric tonnes of structural payload over up to 3,900 nautical miles, while offering significant volumetric capabilities with up to 26 main deck and up to 32 lower deck positions.
