Lessor Gecas has announced a deal to lease out six of its B737-800BCFs — two to Russian carrier Atran and four to an unidentified customer.

Atran recently took delivery of two of the aircraft from Gecas and will add two more of the P2F narrowbodies to its operations in September.

Currently, 40 of Gecas’ B737-800BCFs are in operation.

Vitaliy Andreev, general director of Atran Airlines, said: “In today’s highly competitive landscape marked by capacity constraints, it is important to keep pace with the demand and guarantee stable, high-quality services for our customers.

“These reliable converted freighters will support our ongoing fleet development strategy, enable smooth phase-out of older freighters and ramp up our delivery options.”

“The team at Gecas Cargo takes pride in ensuring our airline clients are afforded a steady flow of available Boeing converted freighters to enter service on time and meet the demand of the Air Cargo networks,” added Richard Greener, senior vice president and manager of Gecas Cargo.

“We are delighted to support the replacement growth strategies of Atran with these additional operating leases for B737-800BCFs.”

Between 737-800BCFs and 777-300ERSFs, Gecas currently holds orders and options exceeding 100 P2F conversions.
