Pemco-Vallair deal gives 737-400 new lease of life

Pemco World Air Services has signed a deal with Vallair for a B737-400 passenger-to-freighter conversion, its first with the European-based aviation asset management firm. Work will start this month (June) in Jinan Shandong, China, by Pemco’s partner, Staeco and the aircraft is scheduled for redelivery in September.
The converted plane will have 11 pallet positions, up to 48,000lb payload, and 4,600 cu ft of total volume and the centre of gravity has been optimised to give the highest usable payload, adds Pemco.
Vallair chief executive, Gregoire Lebigot, said: “We chose Pemco based on their quality of work, countless years of experience, and solid on-time record.”
“We’re honored to be Vallair’s freighter conversion partner,” added Pemco director of cargo programs, Mike Andrews. “We look forward to contributing to their mantra ‘end of service, does not mean end of life’.”
