AviaAM Leasing has delivered the company’s first 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) to Icelandic air cargo transportation company Bluebird Nordic.
The 737-800BCF underwent passenger-to-freighter (P2F) conversion works at the Taikoo (Shandong) Aircraft Engineering Company (STAECO) facility in Jinan, China.
A subsequent C-check and a repaint of the airframe to match the future lessee’s livery was performed at Kaunas, Lithuania.
The 737-800BCF has already joined Bluebird Nordic’s fleet. Both AviaAM Leasing and Bluebird Nordic are part of Avia Solutions Group.
“The delivery of the first 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter is a significant achievement for the company committed to expanding its presence in the air cargo market over the coming years,” said AviaAM Leasing’s CEO and chairman Tadas Goberis.
