Leasing firm AviaAM Leasing (AviaAM) has been revealed as the launch customer for Mammoth Freighters’ B777-300ERMF freighter conversion programme after signing up for six of the aircraft.

Including this order, Mammoth now has firm orders for 23 777 freighter conversions distributed across multiple customers, and another 17 777-300ER freighter conversions in advanced stages of commitment.

The conversion process for the first aircraft will begin in early 2023 and will take place at Aspire MRO’s facility at Alliance Airport in Fort Worth, Texas.

The aircraft will be able to carry 99 tons of cargo on transatlantic routes and is expected to serve EU-US or China-EU trunk routes.

Tadas Goberis, the chairman and chief executive of AviaAM Leasing, said: “I trust together we will meet the demand for widebody converted freighters to replace aging ones and accommodate future growth across our group airlines’ fleet.”

Mammoth co-chief executive Bill Tarpley added: “As AviaAM expands its strategic focus in the cargo sector, the superior widebody operating economics of the Mammoth 777-300ERMF will perfectly complement their growing fleet of next-generation freighters.”

Mammoth Freighters announced its plans for Boeing 777-200LR and 777-300ER passenger-to-freighter conversion programmes in September 2021.

Cargojet became the launch customer for Mammoth’s B777-200LR freighter conversion programme in November of that year.
