ACC Aviation transacts 737-400 for freighter conversion and lease to Aeronaves


ACC Aviation has transacted a Boeing 737-400 from Lithuania’s GetJet Airlines to Frontera Flight Holdings. The 1991-built aircraft (serial number 24904) will be reconfigured from a 168-seat passenger fit to dedicated freighter for onward lease to Mexican passenger and cargo airline Aeronaves TSM.

Aeronautical Engineers will perform the freighter conversion in Miami, Florida, with work scheduled to start later this summer. A cargo door on the forward left side of the fuselage will be added, while the main deck will be modified to carry multi cargo containers or pallets of up to 23 tonnes (23,000 kg).

The transaction was finalised by ACC’s asset management division, formerly known as Aerotask.

“Demand for freighter aircraft has increased significantly since the pandemic,” said ACC Aviation’s vice president asset management Robert Sitta. “We were therefore very pleased to be able to identify a suitable asset for Frontera Flight Holdings’ client so swiftly and conclude the sale at the end of January.”

Aeronaves TSM’s chief executive officer Enrique Garza commented: “The 737 will become an integral part of our fleet once the conversion is complete, which will enable us to strengthen our position as leaders in the air cargo market and leverage the e-commerce demand between Mexico and Central America.”
