Use this oneST Engineering, Airbus and their joint venture, Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW) announced the redelivery of an A321 passenger-to-freighter (P2F) aircraft to BBAM Limited Partnership (BBAM), an aircraft lease management company with over US$29 billion of assets under management and some 150 professionals located in offices around the world. This is the first A321P2F redelivery made to BBAM, with several more units to come as contracted with EFW. This first BBAM A321 converted freighter will be leased to British charter airline, Titan Airways.

The A321P2F is the first in its size category to offer containerised loading in both the main (up to 14 full container positions) and lower deck (up to 10 container positions). EFW’s A321P2F solution has a generous and proven gross payload of over 28 metric tons, with further upside potential in future conversions. The solution, which comes with optimised weight distribution to enable empty flights and random loading, accords high flexibility for operators, in particular express carriers. The fact that EFW’s programme is the only OEM solution for A321P2F in the market also ensures lifecycle value, given its superiority in quality, reliability and ease of maintenance.

To meet the rising demand for A321P2F, ST Engineering, along with EFW, plans to set up additional conversion sites in China, the US and Germany, which will ramp up its global conversion capacity to 25 slots per year by 2023.
