Pemco Conversions has delivered a second Passenger-to-FlexCombi (FC) converted aircraft to Bahrain-based Chisholm Enterprises.

Chisholm subsidiary Texel Air, a non-scheduled cargo airline, will operate the Boeing 737-700FC from Bahrain International Airport.

The aircraft offers three configurations a 24-seat cabin plus a 2,640-cubic-foot cargo hold for up to 30,000 pounds of payload in six pallet positions; a 12-seat cabin plus a 3,005-cubic-foot cargo hold for up to 35,000 pounds of payload in seven pallet positions; or full-freighter mode consisting of a 3,370-cubic-foot cargo hold for up to 40,000 pounds of payload in eight pallet positions. 

“The FlexCombi’s range is ideal for supporting Texel Air’s operation with up to six-hour non-stop routes,” said Mike Andrews, director of conversion programmes for Pemco.

The delivery comes a little over a year after Texel took delivery of the world’s first Boeing 737-700 FlexCombi from Pemco.

The Chisholm Enterprises-owned non-scheduled airline and MRO firm said at the time the aircraft meant it could switch between “humanitarian, government, express integrator and commercial flights from major airports to smaller remote runways” without compromising cargo volumes.
