Turkish Technic successfully performed the Upper Frame Shell cut-out for the very first converted A330P2F at the Istanbul facilities. The aircraft is scheduled to be re-delivered mid of the year 2024 to Air Transport Service Group. Turkish Technic is the most recent conversion house supporting the Passenger-to-Freighter Airbus conversion programs of EFW with meanwhile nine conversion sites on three continents.

Jordi Boto, CEO of EFW stated: “We are glad to have Turkish Technic with its deep experience in maintaining Airbus aircraft on board.”

Mikail Akbulut, the CEO of Turkish Technic, commented: "We are happy to reach this milestone on the first conversion as we partner with EFW to meet high level demand in the market. We're looking forward to providing the best possible performance for our customers with our extensive structural and avionic modification capabilities.”

ATSG Chief Commercial Officer Paul Chase, said: “The A330 will provide a solution to ATSG customers seeking a freighter that offers both operational and economic benefits.”
