SmartLynx shows off Airbus A321 Freighter

The SmartLynx Airbus A321F has broken new ground in air cargo transportation.

The carrier was happy to share footage of the most technologically advanced and environmentally efficient aircraft in its class now based in Leipzig/Halle Airport and operating on behalf of DHL.

A320/A321P2F are the only Single Aisle freighters that accommodate containers or pallets on both decks, allowing for more useable volume, increased payload capability, better interlining capability and turnaround times, as well as more flexibility. The A321 aircraft allows the cargo mover to carry live animals, cars, aircraft engines, etc. – cargo that was previously transported only via wide-body aircraft.

The A321F, with the registration 9H-CGA, is the first aircraft of its type to be registered in Malta and is also the first of its type to be introduced to the SmartLynx line-up of A320 and A321 aircraft.

SmartLynx – a family member of the Avia Solutions Group, the largest aviation and aerospace business group operating in Central and Eastern Europe – is also proud of the aircraft’s new livery, specially commissioned to feature both SmartLynx and DHL branding. The new freighter will fly to Leipzig where it will commence operations in support of the Express Division of Deutsche Post’s DHL group. The partnership will further enhance DHL’s unit Co2 emissions by introducing the most fuel-efficient narrow-body aircraft in its class.
