The transport lasted 5 nights, starting from the Aernnova factory in Berantevilla, in northeastern Spain. The panels (two sides, one central) are to complete the rear of the Beluga XL aircraft.
Based on the fuselage of the current A330, the new Airbus cargo fleet will include 5 Beluga XL aircraft. The first will enter operational service in 2019. They will gradually replace the current Beluga ST, which were built around the A300 aircraft.
