Airbus at the IATA World Cargo Symposium

Summary

Airbus' latest generation mid-size freighter aircraft, the A330-200F, was showcased as a capable, flexible and economical air cargo solution at the International Air Transport Association's World Cargo Symposium in Bangkok, Thailand.

The International Air Transport Association's World Cargo Symposium in Bangkok, Thailand this week provided an opportunity for Airbus to underscore the capabilities of its growing freighter aircraft family, particularly with today's increasingly challenging market conditions for the air cargo industry.



Didier Lenormand, Airbus' head of Marketing - Freighters, outlined the need to match capacity to demand in such difficult times, with the latest generation of long-haul mid-size freighters offering the greatest flexibility. In this context, he provided delegates with details of the new A330-200F freighter aircraft, which is well suited to today's operating environment for cargo carriers.



"With the ability to carry between 64 and 69 tonnes on flights of up to 4,000 nautical miles, the A330-200F will enable airlines to maintain much needed frequencies while mitigating the risk of over-capacity," Lenormand said. "At the same time, airlines will benefit from the unrivalled economic efficiency of the aircraft as a member of the popular A330 series."



Over 700 delegates - including 220 representatives from 102 airlines around the world - attended the 2009 IATA World Cargo Symposium.
