Airbus builds highly-capable freighters and airlifters 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 the manufacturing flow within the company’s European production network – operated by the Airbus Transport International affiliate.
To accommodate the sustained output of commercial jetliners, and to support the A350 XWB ramp-up and other production increases, the BelugaXL super transporter will enter service beginning in 2019 – with five aircraft succeeding a similar number of previous-generation Beluga A300-600 ST currently in service.
