AerCap delivered its 50th 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF). The aircraft conversion was completed at COOPESA, a MRO provider with expertise in aircraft modifications and conversions. The aircraft was redelivered to GOL Linhas Aéreas, which will operate the aircraft on behalf of a Latin American e-commerce company as part of the growth strategy and logistics solution of GOLLOG, Gol’s logistics business unit.
“We are delighted to celebrate this milestone delivery with our partners at Boeing and our longstanding customer, GOL. Since the program launched in 2016, we have seen unprecedented demand for express air cargo from e-commerce retail businesses,” Rich Greener, head of aercap cargo at AeroCap Holdings, said. “Today, the 737-800BCF is one of the most in-demand narrowbody freighter aircraft in the industry, thanks to its versatility and reliability, making it the perfect choice for express air cargo and e-commerce networks.”
“We thank AerCap Cargo for their early confidence in the 737-800BCF, and congratulate them on this milestone,” Kate Schaefer, vice president of commercial modifications, engineering & specialty products business at Boeing, said. “The BCF team has navigated global challenges during the past few years and truly pulled together to deliver this 50th 737-800BCF for AerCap. It is a testament to the ongoing commitment to our customers’ success.”
AerCap Cargo has more than 25 years’ experience in freighter leasing including passenger-to-freighter (P2F) conversions, with more than 100 successful conversions.
