Second freighter conversion for Turkey’s MNG

[ April 12, 2022   //   ]

Turkish-owned MNG Airlines is converting a second A330-300 aircraft into a freighter at the Elbe Flugzeugwerke base in Dresden, Germany. It follows introduction of the operator and Turkey’s first passenger to freighter aircraft in November last year. With a 61-tonne payload the A330-300P2F aircraft offers higher capacity than older generation aircraft with a reduced carbon footprint. Conversion involves stripping the passenger cabin completely, reinforcing the fuselage and floor structure, plugging passenger doors and windows and installing a new wide cargo door.
