CargoAir continues fleet update with B737-800 conversions

Bulgaria-based CargoAir has ordered its fourth B737-800SF freighter conversion from Aeronautical Engineers, Inc (AEI) as it continues its fleet “revitalisation”.

The aircraft, (MSN 30883) is slated to commence modification at the end of October 2022, with all conversion-related touch labour to be performed by the authorised AEI conversion centre, Commercial Jet in Miami.

“The AEI B737-800SFs are part of our overall fleet revitalisation program and will be used to incrementally replace our existing fleet of B737-300SF/-400SF freighters,” remarked CargoAir purchase and fleet acquisitions director, Angel Petrov.

AEI said that CargoAir is an important, long-term customer for AEI and upon completion of the order, CargoAir will operate a total of 15 AEI freighters, including a mix of B737-300SF, B737-400SF, and B737-800SF freighters.

The AEI converted B737-800SF freighter offers a maindeck payload of more than 23 tonnes and incorporates eleven full height 88” x 125” container positions, plus an additional position for an AEP/AEH.
