AviaAM purchases 2 more Boeing aircraft for P2F conversion
AviaAM Leasing has purchased two more Boeing B737-800 aircraft for Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversion.
The aircraft, bearing serial numbers 29769 and 28225, are the fifth and sixth Boeing 737-800 respectively inducted to cargo conversion, with the previous three already delivered to sister company and lessee Bluebird Nordic and the fourth to be delivered in late January.
The two aircraft have already been inducted for P2F conversions at the Taikoo (Shandong) Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (STAECO) facility in Jinan (TNA), China.
P2F conversion is anticipated to be completed by the second quarter of 2023.
AviaAM Leasing is currently undertaking a passenger-to-freighter (P2F) conversion project, which includes the Boeing 737-800 series and a commitment to convert 25 aircraft of different types over the next four years.
Iceland-based ACMI leasing and cargo airline Bluebird Nordic and AviaAM Leasing are a part of Avia Solutions Group and are working together to enable Bluebird to achieve its fleet expansion goals.
“We continue to execute our plan related to Boeing 737-800BCF conversion program and thus support our group’s cargo airlines with more efficient cargo aircraft,” said Tadas Goberis, chief executive and chairman of AviaAM Leasing.
“Each of the conversion project 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.”
