On 11 July 2022, AFG Aviation Ireland Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aircraft Finance Germany, completed the acquisition of one (1) Airbus A330-200 bearing MSN 926 from a subsidiary of French shipping giant CMA CGM S.A.

The aircraft will shortly be ferried to Teruel Airport (Spain) for storage while it awaits conversion with Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH (EFW).

AFG‘s Peter Koster, Head of Freighter Lease and Trading, comments: „We are very pleased with our acquisition of this strong asset from CMA CGM. We are bullish regarding the long-term outlook for the air freight industry and this aircraft will perform nicely post conversion as a full freighter.
