AviaAM Leasing has delivered another 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) to Icelandic ACMI leasing and cargo airline Bluebird Nordic.

This is the fourth aircraft in the Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversion programme for sister company and lessee Bluebird, and was originally due to be delivered in January.

AviaAM said in a LinkedIn post: “AviaAM Leasing is pleased to have completed the delivery of a 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter to Bluebird Nordic. This is the fourth aircraft in the Passenger-to-Freighter conversion program.”

The B737-800, bearing serial number 29790, underwent the P2F conversion works provided by Boeing at Taikoo (Shandong) Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (STAECO) facility in Jinan (TNA), China.

Bluebird Nordic and AviaAM Leasing are a part of Avia Solutions Group and are working together to enable Bluebird to achieve its fleet expansion goals.

AviaAM Leasing is currently undertaking a passenger-to-freighter (P2F) conversion project, which includes the Boeing 737-800 series and a commitment to convert 25 aircraft of different types over the next four years.

In December, AviaAM Leasing purchased two B737-800 aircraft for P2F conversion. The aircraft, bearing serial numbers 29769 and 28225, are the fifth and sixth B737-800 respectively inducted to cargo conversion.

The two aircraft have already been inducted for P2F conversions at the Taikoo (Shandong) Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (STAECO) facility in Jinan (TNA), China.
