San Francisco-based aircraft lease company BBAM has ordered three 737-800 Boeing converted freighters (BCF) to add to its fleet.

The 737-800BCF, which has a payload of up to 23.9 tonnes, is built using the next-generation 737 platform “known for its reliability and efficiency”, said Boeing in a statement.

Boeing also revealed that since entering service in 2018, the 737-800BCF has won 130 orders and commitments.

Boeing’s senior vice president of commercial sales and marketing, Ihssane Mounir, commented: “We are delighted that BBAM has selected the Boeing converted freighter programme to extend the life of their next-generation 737s and capture a new market opportunity in the years ahead. This agreement shows how we can serve our customers by delivering efficient and reliable airplanes and a portfolio of services that extracts value throughout the life of those jets.”

Steve Zissis, president and chief executive of BBAM, added: “We chose Boeing’s conversion program because we believe it maximizes the platform’s capability and reliability. Through the Boeing freighter conversion program, these 737-800s will continue to deliver value for our customers and investors for many years to come.

Zissis added: “The 737-800 is an integral part of BBAM’s managed fleet of commercial passenger jet aircraft and we see strong interest from our customers in the standard-body freighter.”
