Georgia-based CAMEX Airlines has taken delivery of its first Boeing B737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) from San Francisco, California-headquartered lessor BBAM.

The cargo charter airline, based at Tbilisi International Airport, said on its website that it operates B737-800F and 737-800BCF aircraft but does not specify how many of each aircraft is currently in its fleet. Air Cargo News has contacted CAMEX for confirmation.

According to CAMEX’s LinkedIn profile, CAMEX Airlines was established in 2020 by CAMEX International, which has been operating for over 12 years as a freight forwarder across CIS, Central Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Europe and the US.

CAMEX Airlines will be operating to destinations in Asia, the UK, US and the EU.

The airline’s business plan has been developed by former Lufthansa Cargo experts, according to the airline.

CAMEX Airlines applied for an Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) from the Georgian Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) earlier this year.

In July 2021, BBAM confirmed it had ordered 12 737-800BCF, bringing its total orders and commitments for the aircraft to 31.

In August 2021, BBAM confirmed it had ordered a minimum of 20 Airbus A320/A321 Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversions per year through to 2025 from EFW.
