01 / 06 / 2016
Conversion specialist PEMCO World Air Services has redelivered its first Boeing 737-400 passenger-to-freighter (P2F) aircraft to Salam Aviation, a consultancy specialising in acquisitions, financing and logistics support.
Performed at PEMCO’s headquarters at Tampa International Airport, the conversion was completed in 90 days. The aircraft is set to be in service in the coming weeks.
Rami Kayali of Salam Aviation said: “We chose PEMCO based on their quality, reliability and on-time record, and they sure delivered. We look forward to providing our customers with more PEMCO-converted aircraft and our long partnership ahead.”
The newly-converted aircraft features 11 pallet positions, up to 22 tonnes of payload, and 4,600 cu ft of total volume.
PEMCO said that the optimised centre of gravity of its B737-400 freighter "yields the highest possible usable payload and retains maximum best-in-class fuel efficiency for unbeatable range and operating economics".
