Lessor BBAM has ordered nine more B737-800 converted freighters from Boeing as it looks to extend the life of its aircraft.

The latest order brings BBAM’s total B737-800BCF orders to 40 aircraft.

The latest order will be the first B737-800BCF conversions completed at a new line set to open next year at MRO provider KF Aerospace’s facility in Kelowna.

“We continue to extend the life of the B737-800s in our fleet and support strong demand from our customers by further growing our 737-800BCF order book,” said John Lynch, senior vice president, head of freighter programmes at BBAM.

“By taking conversion slots at KF Aerospace in Canada, we are delighted to leverage Boeing’s global network of conversion lines to offer our customers convenience and flexibility by being where they need us to be.”

The freighter carries a payload of up to 23.9 tonnes and has a range of 3,750 km.

BBAM holds conversion slots at other Boeing MRO providers, including Cooperativa Autogestionaria de Servicios Aeroindustriales (COOPESA), an Alajuela, Costa Rica-based MRO provider, and Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services (BSAS) in Shanghai, China.
