Turkish Technic has achieved the milestone of helping convert an Airbus A330 from passenger to freight plane.

Working with Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW) GmbH, the centre of excellence for Airbus Passenger to freighter (P2F) conversions, Turkish Technic has converted and relocated the upper frame shell cut out, a key step for installing the main deck cargo door.

This project, the first in a series of P2F conversions, is scheduled for completion in mid-2024.

Mikail Akbulut, CEO of Turkish Technic, said: “We are happy to reach a major milestone on the first conversion as we partner with EFW to meet high-level demand in the market.

“Passenger-to-freighter conversions require a combination of industry-leading expertise, structural skills and operational excellence.

“Leveraging our extensive know-how and strong collaboration with our partners and suppliers, we are fully equipped to deliver technical services and innovative solutions.

“We’re looking forward to successfully completing the conversion and providing the best possible performance for our customers with our extensive structural and avionic modification capabilities.”
