AviaAM Leasing, a global aviation holding company, continues its complex Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversion project, their commitment of having 25 converted aircraft of different types in the upcoming four years.
The ongoing Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversion project was the first of its kind for the company, with the first Boeing 737-800 for conversion acquired by AviaAM Leasing in March 2021.
Recently, the P2F conversion of the second B737-800 aircraft was completed by the Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Company (GAMECO) facility in Guangzhou, China. The aircraft was ferried to FL Technics Kaunas facilities for further maintenance and painting in the lessee's corporate livery. The 737-800BCF (Boeing Converted Freighter) will join the fleet of Bluebird Nordic – a rapidly growing Iceland-based cargo airline, offering ACMI and Full-service Cargo services.
Tadas Goberis, the CEO and Chairman at AviaAM Leasing said, “The Passenger-to-Freighter conversion project is an exciting opportunity for AviaAM Leasing. This ongoing complex job will aid in our efforts to expand our presence in the air cargo market over the coming years.”
The third B737-800 aircraft is being converted to freighter configuration by Boeing at the Taikoo (Shandong) Aircraft Engineering Co, Ltd (STAECO) facility in Jinan (TNA), China with redelivery expected by the end of December this year.
