CMA CGM Group signs firm order with Airbus for four A350Fs

CMA CGM Group is to purchase four A350F freighter aircraft.

The firm order brings the shipping and logistics company’s total Airbus fleet to nine aircraft, including four A330-200Fs and one A330-200 to be converted into a freighter.

The A350F features a large main deck cargo door and a fuselage length optimised for cargo operations, Airbus said.

More than 70 per cent of the airframe is made of advanced materials resulting in a 30t lighter take-off weight, the manufacturer added. The aircraft also has a 109t payload capability and the ability to serve all cargo markets.
