AviaAM Leasing acquires two more 737-800s for freighter conversion

AviaAM Leasing has purchased two more Boeing 737-800 aircraft for passenger-to-freighter (P2F) conversions.

The aircraft, bearing serial numbers 29769 and 28225, are the fifth and sixth Boeing 737-800s respectively inducted to cargo conversion, with the previous three already delivered to the lessee and the fourth to be delivered in late January.

The aircraft are operated by Iceland-based cargo airline Bluebird Nordic, which offers ACMI and full-service cargo services.

“We continue to execute our plan related to the Boeing 737-800BCF conversion programme and thus support our group’s cargo airlines with more efficient cargo aircraft,” said AviaAM Leasing’s CEO and chairman Tadas Goberis.

“Each of the conversion projects we undertake requires detailed planning and complex solutions, thus we’re proud to continue this project, this way strengthening our presence in the air cargo market as a reliable leasing and trading service provider.”

The two aircraft have already been inducted for P2F conversions at the Taikoo (Shandong) Aircraft Engineering Company (STAECO) facility in Jinan, China.

The conversion process is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2023.
