Aircraft Asset Assessment – A330-200F

April 26, 2021

Market Presence. The A330-200F was developed as a means of stimulating additional sales for Airbus widebodies at a difficult time for the European manufacturer and to act as a replacement for the A300-600F which had ended production. Airbus was also conscious that Boeing had a pre-eminent position in the new freighter market. By using the main deck cargo door already used on the A300-600F the development costs associated with the -200F were contained along some changes to the nose landing gear bay were required. The principal sources of constraint in terms of the limited orderbook were the weak market conditions. The disparity in the total conversion cost of the B767-300ER versus that of a new A330-200F weakened demand for the latter. In the short to medium term, the A330-200F will be at risk from the conversion of A330s.
