Airbus delivers A330-200F to MNG Airlines
BLAGNAC, France, 31 Aug. 2012. MNG Airlines, Turkey’s dedicated freight operator, has taken delivery of its first of four A330-200Fs on order. Today the airline already operates a fleet of seven A300 cargo aircraft, and will expand its services by moving up to the A330 Freighter.
The A330-200F’s range and payload capability provides flexibility for both regional and intercontinental operations and versatility to match costs and frequencies with market expectations, allowing operators to grow existing business and expand into new routes. The A330-200F targets the 'mid-size' freighter segment which is forecasted to be the core of future freighter demand, and will require more than 1,320 aircraft in the next 20 years.
To date, Airbus has received more than 1,200 orders for the various versions of the A330, with just under 900 aircraft currently flying with over 120 customers and operators worldwide.
