Amazon Air will lease 10 Airbus A330-300P2F freighters from Altavair to help fulfil its one-day delivery promise to Amazon Prime customers. 

“We’re thrilled to welcome Airbus to our Amazon Air fleet. These A330-300s will not only be the first of their kind in our fleet, they’ll also be the newest, largest aircraft for Amazon Air, allowing us to deliver more customer packages with each flight,' Philippe Karam, Director, Amazon Global Air Fleet & Sourcing.

Amazon Air decided on the aircraft based on the A330’s capacity and economics. The ten airframes are being converted from passenger aircraft to freighters by Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH (EFW), the centre of excellence for Airbus Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversions. The first A330-300P2F aircraft will join Amazon Air’s fleet in late 2023. 

'The endorsement of our freighters by Amazon speaks volumes about the market value of the A330 and the position Airbus wide-bodies are gaining in the cargo market,” said Christian Scherer, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer and Head of Airbus International. 

“Amazon has built a reputation around delivering their goods to our doorsteps with extraordinary speed and consistency, and we’re very proud that our aircraft are trusted to become a key link in that remarkable logistics chain,” Scherer added. 

Hawaiian Airlines will operate the aircraft on behalf of Amazon Air. 

Amazon Air transports customer packages over longer distances in shorter timeframes to deliver on its customer promise of fast, free delivery.
