AviaAM Leasing, a global aviation holding company engaged in tailored aircraft leasing and trading services, has announced a purchase of two more Boeing 737-800 aircraft for Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversions.
The aircraft, bearing serial numbers 29769 and 28225, are the fifth and sixth Boeing 737-800 respectively inducted to cargo conversion, with the previous three already delivered to the lessee and the fourth to be delivered in late January. Subject aircraft are successfully operated by Bluebird Nordic, a rapidly growing Iceland-based cargo airline, offering ACMI and full-service cargo services.
“We continue to execute our plan related to Boeing 737-800BCF conversion program and thus support our group’s cargo airlines with more efficient cargo aircraft,” Tadas Goberis, CEO and Chairman of AviaAM Leasing, said. “Each of the conversion project we undertake requires detailed planning and complex solutions, thus we’re proud to continue this project, this way strengthening our presence in the air cargo market as a reliable leasing and trading service provider.”
The two aircraft have already been inducted for P2F conversions at the Taikoo (Shandong) Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (STAECO) facility in Jinan (TNA), China.
It is expected to have P2F conversion completed by Q2 2023.
