By Damian Brett

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has won a contract to convert an additional three B767-300 aircraft for DHL.

The deal has an option for a fourth conversion and comes on the back of growth in the e-commerce market.

IAI executive vice president and general manager of aviation group, Yossi Melamed, said: “IAI is a world leader for passenger-to-cargo conversions. We provide high-quality solutions tailored to customer’s needs on narrow- and wide-body aircraft.

“The constant increase in the e-commerce market and the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic have emphasized the importance of cargo aircraft. We thank DHL for its acknowledgment of IAI’s performance and again trusting us to convert additional aircraft for their cargo aircraft fleet.”
