Jamco’s First B777-300ER preighter conversion enters into service

Jamco Aero Design and Engineering (Jade), a subsidiary of Jamco Corporation and SIA Engineering Company, has completed its first temporary passenger-to-freighter (P2F) conversion on a Boeing B777-300ER.

The modification was carried out on behalf of Singapore Airlines.

The conversion is part of a Jamco’s Project Blue Sky Clean Cabin Initiative, which involves the removal of passenger seats from two zones in the cabin, thereby allowing cargo to be secured on the cabin floor.

With the seats removed, the Boeing B777-300ER can carry up to 193,000lbs of cargo, which is a 12% increase in terms of capacity.

Jamco said the conversion maximises cargo capacity in the passenger cabin, reduces the “dead weight” of the aircraft and creates fuel savings for the airline.

“What’s more, the removed seats can be safely stored, eliminating the risk of damage during cargo loading,” the company added.

JADE’s B777-300ER P2F conversion has received a Supplementary Type Certificate (STC) by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS). The programme also meets the set requirements for FAA and EASA STC approvals.
