DHL Express taking delivery of P2F aircraft
DHL Express has become the first operator to take delivery of the A330-300 Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) converted aircraft from Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW), the joint venture between ST Aerospace and Airbus.
The delivery, which took place at EFW’s freighter conversion facilities in Dresden, follows on from the successful completion of test flights in October.
DHL Express has firm orders for eight A330-300P2F units in total, with additional options to receive another 10.
“DHL Express is very excited to be bringing the first A330-300 P2F into commercial operation within our international air network,” said Geoff Kehr, SVP, Global Air Fleet Management, DHL Express.
“The first aircraft is scheduled to strengthen our Asia Pacific air network, bringing added capacity and increased efficiency to a market where we are seeing dynamic express volume growth.”
