Third B737-400 freighter conversion for HNA Group

Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services has redelivered the third of three B737-400 passenger-to-freighter conversions to Hainan Airlines and Yangtze River Express, both subsidiaries of the HNA Group.
The modification was conducted under the supplemental type certificate held by Aeronautical Engineers Inc (AEI).
Boeing Shanghai has now completed five conversions at its facility, located at Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport.
Liu Wenbin, general manager of Hainan Airlines Engineering, said: “We see this successful conversion program as a good start for future cooperation with Boeing Shanghai in more areas.”
Hainan Airlines, with headquarters in Haikou, is the largest privately-owned air transport company and the fourth-largest airline in terms of fleet size in China. 
Yangtze River Express Airlines provides domestic and international air cargo transportation and logistics services. 
Boeing Shanghai is a joint venture between Boeing, Shanghai Airport Authorities and China Eastern Airlines.
