More Details On The A320/321PF

Thu Apr 26, 2007 3:24 pm

From ATWonline:

EADS and United Aircraft Building Corp. will operate a joint venture to convert A320s and A321s to freighters for entry into service beginning in 2011 (ATWOnline, May 17, 2006). Speaking yesterday at Airbus's annual Technical Press Briefing in Toulouse, COO-Customers John Leahy said the conversions will take place at facilities in Dresden and north of Moscow. The cost for an A320P2F will be $4.5 million, rising to $5 million for an A321P2F. The converted A320 freighter will carry a payload of 23 tons while the A321 will carry up 27 tons.

Airbus is talking to both parcel and "regular" freight carriers but so far it is not yet clear who the launch customer will be.
