Two production sites; Dresden for widebodies (A330/340) and Lukhovitsy for narrowbodies (A320 Families)
Production is expected to be 30-35 Narrobodies and 10-12 widebodies.
I did not expect A330/340 getting converted this early to freighters
European companies Airbus and EFW and Russian corporations Irkut and MiG signed a memorandum for creating a joint venture to convert passenger airplanes A320/330/340 into cargo aircrafts in Berlin yesterday. According to Irkut vice-president Valery Bezverkhny, the planes will be converted in Dresden and in Lukhovitsy near Moscow. The annual turnover of the joint venture will reach nearly $300 million when it starts working at full capacity. Volga-Dnepr Group announced its plan to convert Boeing at Ulyanovsk Aviastar Joint Enterprise factory in November. It promises to completely develop the business-plan for this project by the end of the year.
