IAI Bedek orders filling up quickly

ISRAEL Aerospace Industries (IAI) Bedek, the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) unit of IAI, has won 29 new cargo conversion orders this year after a slow two years.

IAI vice-president and general manager of marketing, Jack Gaber, said the orders are for 14 767-200/300, 10 737-300/400 and five 747-400 conversions.

While not confirmed, it is assumed by many that the 767 orders are for Air Transport Services Group (ATSG), three of which would be those bought from Qantas in June.

“Our lines are filling up fairly quickly,” he Gaber said, adding that IAI expects to convert seven 747-400s in 2011.
