GA Telesis orders six B737-800SF cargo conversions
GA Telesis (GAT), a commercial aviation company, has ordered six B737-800SF cargo conversions with Aeronautical Engineers (AEI). The first conversions will commence in early 2022 and continue through early 2023.
The order will be executed by GAT’s LIFT (Leasing, Investments, Finance and Trading) Group. This is the third order by LIFT and has completed 12 B737-800SF delivery conversion slots.
“We have a very aggressive and deliberate strategy that has continued to grow since launching our first conversion over a year ago, and we will continue to refine it to include other aircraft platforms in support of our cargo airline customers worldwide,” commented Marc Cho, president, LIFT Group.
The conversion work will be performed by authorized AEI Conversion Centers in the US and abroad. LIFT will continue to evaluate additional B737SF slots and other freighter aircraft models to support the global air cargo industry’s expanding main deck freighter needs.
“The Asset Transaction Group (ATG) continues to grow our narrow-body freighter portfolio, and the GA Telesis Ecosystem continues to deliver value across the platform that differentiates us from other freight lessors. Our ability to provide spares support, engine, APU, leasing, and contributions from our various MROs add significant value to our customers, beyond what many of our competitors can offer,” said David Ellis, senior vice president, ATG.
