Freighter aircraft

Airbus builds highly-capable freighters to fulfill a full range of cargo lift requirements. The A330-200F is the only new-generation cargo aircraft available today that meets operations’ needs in the mid-size, long-haul segment. For A330s that have completed their useful operational service as passenger jetliners, the A330P2F freighter conversion option offers a solution that is both cost-effective and highly-efficient.

For the airlift of oversized cargo loads, Airbus operates a fleet of A300-600ST Beluga Super Transporters that support their own manufacturing flow within the company’s European production network – with these aircraft also available for third-party charter through the Airbus Transport International affiliate. 

To support the A350 XWB ramp-up and other production increases, a new super transporter is under development, with the first of five BelugaXL aircraft to enter into service in 2019.
