Turkish freighter operator MNG Airlines has grown its fleet with an Airbus A330-200F.

The airline said in a LinkedIn post on Thursday February 8: “We’re thrilled to announce the newest addition to the MNG Airlines family, the A330-200F, registered as TC-MCU. This aircraft strengthens our presence in the aviation industry with its modern design, high performance, and environmentally friendly features.

“We are grateful to everyone who has joined us on this journey and look forward to the opportunity to provide a broader and more efficient service to our valued customers and business partners. We are proud and excited to welcome the TC-MCU to our fleet and look forward to many successful flights together.”

The airline did not state where the aircraft was acquired from. Air Cargo News has requested more information.

German conversion firm EFW has previously carried out conversions for the airline.

EFW converted two A330-300 aircraft for MNG, and delivered the second of these in 2022.

MNG Airlines offers international cargo services to and from Europe, the Middle East and Africa through its own flights and through partnerships with other airlines.

According to the Planespotters website, MNG Airlines currently operates with a fleet of five Airbus A300-600s, two Airbus A321-200s, two Airbus A330-200s and two A330-300P2Fs.

In August last year, MNG Airlines terminated its proposed business combination agreement with the specialised private equity company Golden Falcon Acquisition as part of plans to become a publicly-listed US company on the New York stock exchange.
