India's Flyington Freighters orders six Airbus A330-200 freighters

Flyington Freighters Ltd, based in Hyderabad, India, have signed for six A330-200F aircraft, the newest freighter from Airbus and the newest member of the highly successful A330/A340 Family. Flyington Freighters Ltd is the first cargo airline to order the A330-200F, and the first aircraft will join the fleet in the second half of 2009.

"We are happy to be the first cargo airline to order the A330-200 Freighter. We ordered it because it offers us significant operational benefits and suits our business model. The aircraft offers economic advantages which make the A330-200F the best choice for us", said Mr. T Venkattram Reddy, Chairman, Flyington Freighters Ltd.

"India is one of the world's most important aviation markets right now and the development of locally based freight operations will play a big part in the growth of the region's cargo market. We are committed to a partnership with Flyington Freighters, now and in the future. The A330-200 freighter has more lift, more range and better flexibility than any other freighter in its class. We're delighted that Flyington Freighter Ltd is a launch customer", said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers.

The A330-200F is the only mid-size, long-haul all-cargo aircraft capable of carrying 64 metric tons over 4,000 nautical miles / 7,400 kilometers in "range mode" configuration, or 69 metric tons up to 3,200 nm / 5,930 km in "payload mode." The A330-200F offers 30 percent more volume than any freighter in its class.

One of the many advantages of the A330-200F is that it is the first freighter to introduce a versatile main-deck cargo loading system, which can accommodate both pallets and containers, enabling operators to service each of these very different markets.

The A330-200F is a derivative of the very popular A330 Family aircraft with more than 60 operators worldwide. With a large number of aircraft in service it will enable a smooth introduction of the new all-cargo variant into existing A330 fleets. The A330-200F will also benefit from, as all the other Airbus aircraft in production, the now well recognised Airbus Fly-By-Wire technology enabling faster pilot transition to and from other Airbus aircraft, both passenger and freighter.

Airbus is an EADS Company.
