Icelandic ACMI leasing and airfreight company Bluebird Nordic has taken delivery of a B737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) as it looks to grow its cargo operations.

Sister company AviaAM Leasing delivered the 737-800BCF to Bluebird. This is the third delivery of the aircraft type, following the second delivery in February.

Both companies are a part of Avia Solutions Group and are working together to enable Bluebird to achieve its fleet expansion goals.

The Boeing 737-800 underwent the Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversion works provided by Boeing at the Taikoo (Shandong) Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (STAECO) facility in Jinan (TNA), China.

In January, Bluebird Nordic said it would lease three Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in an effort to expand its widebody cargo ACMI operations.

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.

Bluebird Nordic is a wet lease/ACMI provider in Europe and operates in partnership with companies including DHL, UPS, Bridges Worldwide and ASL/FedEx. Bluebird Nordic also operates its own cargo service to and from Iceland globally – mainly via UPS, Emirates, and Aer Lingus through interline agreements.
