03 / 05 / 2017

Dresden-based Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW) has formally announced the 14 pallet configuration for its A321 Passenger to Freighter (P2F) conversion programme.

This configuration allows 14 full container positions in the upper deck compartment and ten containers in the lower deck.

With a total inner container volume of 208.1 cu m, the A321 P2F-conversion from EFW will provide the maximum volume capacity in comparison to other narrow body alternatives.

"The A320 family is the only narrowbody aircraft that offers container loading on the lower deck and therefore not only increased volume and payload capabilities but also better turnaround times and interlining capabilities as well as less manpower for loading," said a spokesperson.
