Avion Aircraft Trading commits to six A330-200 Freighters
Avion Aircraft Trading, partly owned by HF Eimskip, parent company of Air Atlanta Icelandic, has ordered six A330-200 Freighters from Airbus for an undisclosed amount.
The A330-200F, which had its industrial launch on Jan. 17, is capable of carrying 64 metric tons of cargo up to 7,400 kilometers in its standard version, or 69 metric tons up to 5,930 kilometers in payload-mode configuration. Avion is scheduled to receive the aircraft in 2010 and 2011.
'The A330-200F is the ideal complement to our portfolio of bigger cargo airplanes, and builds on the successful experience we had in Iceland with the A310 and A300-600 Freighters,' said David Masson, Avion's chief executive officer. 'Its payload range characteristics will open up new possibilities for our airline customers paired with very attractive operating costs.'
