EADS delivers first conversion to RUS

EADS EFW has delivered the first of two A300-600R converted freighters to RUS Aviation. The Sharjah-based cargo airline ordered the ex-American Airlines freighter last September.

“We are pleased to release this newly converted aircraft to RUS Aviation,” said Andreas Sperl, chief executive officer of EADS EFW. “The freighters’ great potential will take its part to enhance the business opportunities of RUS Aviation.”

EADS EFW has a backlog of 17 aircraft for conversion to be delivered to RUS and two other customers through to 2013.
