Ireland-based leasing company CDB Aviation has taken delivery of an A330-300 passenger-to-freighter (P2F) converted aircraft from Germany’s Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW) for Mexico-based cargo carrier, mas.
It is the leasing company’s first ever freighter aircraft. Mas already operates A330-200P2F aircraft leased from Altavair.
The A330-300P2F series aircraft will be operated mainly to Europe, and the A330-200P2F on new scheduled routes to China, due to start before the end of the first half of 2022.
Andrés Fabre, representative at mas main investor the Discovery Americas Investment Fund, said: “We see at mas an impeccable execution of the business plan that we designed together. mas is looking for opportunities introducing modern and efficient aircraft of different models and capacities. All this is turning mas -as planned- into the Mexican cargo airline with a global footprint in the short term.”
