EgyptAir (MS, Cairo Int'l) has signed an agreement with Airbus (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) subsidiary EADS EFW for the conversion of two A330-200s into A330-200(F)s the Cargo Facts publication has reported. The announcement ends almost three years of speculation about who the launch customer for the program, which was first announced in February 2012, is.

Once in service, the freighters will join the ageing EgyptAir Cargo (MSX, Cairo Int'l) fleet which includes two A300-600(F)s and one A300B4(F).
