Passenger-to-freighter converter Avensis Aviation has been awarded a permanent freighter aircraft Supplemental Type Certificate by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency for its fully reversible Medius cargo modification.
Applicable to Airbus A330, the solution transforms passenger cabins into full Class E cargo compartments, giving airline customers the freedom to quickly adapt to industry demand. The modification also introduces a separate supernumerary crew cabin.
Avensis says its solution is the industry’s first to feature a Class E cargo compartment without a cargo door.
Launch customer is Portugal’s TAP Air Cargo and there are ten other customers for 10 committed conversions in 2022-23.
