Luxembourg, August 19th 2019: Vallair, the mature aircraft and asset specialist, has signed an LOI to lease the first A321P2F (Passenger to Freighter) aircraft conversion to Qantas. This A321P2F MSN835 is intended to be operated by Qantas Freight on behalf of its customer - Australia Post.
Qantas will be the first airline in the world to operate the A321 as a freighter aircraft.
To service the recently announced strategic alliance between Qantas and Australia Post the A321P2F will add nearly 50 per cent more capacity - or an additional nine tonnes - compared to the existing fleet. The first A321P2F leased from Vallair is due to be delivered in 2020.
