Air Transat (TS, Montréal Trudeau) will convert two of its A330-200s into makeshift freighters for use on behalf of GTA Air Cargo.

"Our two companies have reached an ACMI agreement for two, soon to be reconfigured, Air Transat aircraft that will fly on behalf of the newest GTA Group company, GTA Air Cargo. The first stage will focus on flights from China and other countries in the far east. Phase two will incorporate additional routes and destinations," Mario D'Urso, the chairman of the Canadian logistics firm's parent, GTA dnata, said via social media.

According to the ch-aviation fleets advanced module, Air Transat currently operates sixteen A330-200s. All of them are presently inactive.

GTA dnata is a cargo and ground handling joint venture between GTA Aviation and UAE-based dnata.
