Pemco World Air Services (PEMCO) has redelivered its 100th Boeing 737-300 converted aircraft, which was modified for SF Airlines.

The 100th conversion was also the 16th -300/-400 aircraft for SF Airlines, with three more planned in 2016. PEMCO started converting 737-300s in 1991 for L’Aeropostale, and has provided aircraft for customers all over the world including China Postal Airlines EMS, Kahala Aviation, Swiftair, TNT Express and Yangtze River Express Airlines.

PEMCO director of conversion programs, Mike Andrews: “I started with PEMCO in 1988 as an A&P mechanic on the conversion program and I’m proud to see what our program has become – a global leader in narrow-body freighter conversion. I’m happy to celebrate our 100th conversion with longtime partner SF Airlines.”

SF Airlines vice president, Liang Xi says: “Since inducting the first B737 Classic in 2011, SF now operates 13 Classics all converted under PEMCO’s STC. We’re very grateful for PEMCO’s excellent STC program and continued support. By the end of the year, we expect the B737 Classic to surpass the B757 to become the largest SF fleet.”
