Mexico-based Aeronaves TSM has ordered four additional AEI B737-400SF freighter conversions from Aeronautical Engineers, Inc (AEI).
This order follows the announcement of two more AEI B737-400SF freighter conversions ordered by the freighter operator in early March.
Upon completion of this order, TSM will operate a total of seven AEI B737-400SF freighter conversions.
Production slots and aircraft MSNs for this order have yet to be announced, however, all modification labour will be performed by the authorised AEI Conversion Centner, Commercial Jet, in Dothan, Alabama.
The airline services customers throughout the Americas including the US, Canada, México, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panamá.
TSM’s total current cargo fleet includes 25 Metro III, 2 Convair 640, 8 DC-9-30, 4 DC-9-15, 13 MD-80SF (with 2 on order), 6 CRJ200 SF (with 4 on order), 2 B737-400SF (1 in work, 1 on order), 2 CRJ200 Package Freighters, along with an additional, 4 Citation II, and 1 Hawker 700 aircraft.
“The B737-400SF remains a popular freighter product offering for AEI,” AEI said. “Since programme launch, the company has redelivered over 120 freighter conversions – 7 were redelivered in 2020.”
