OCT 17, 2022 - 6:57 am
AviaAM Leasing will be the launch customer for Mammoth Freighters’ new 777-300ERMF freighter conversion following the signing of a conversion agreement for six 777-300ERMF freighters.
AviaAM is a global aviation holding company engaged in tailored aircraft leasing and trading services. Having completed multiple 737-800 passenger-to-freighter aircraft conversions this year, AviaAM is making investments in multiple freighter types as it continues its expansion plans in the air cargo market.
Including this order, Mammoth Freighters now has firm orders for 29 777 freighter conversions distributed across multiple customers and another 12 777 freighter conversions in advanced stages of commitment.
“We are excited that AviaAM has selected Mammoth and will be the launch customer for the 777-300ERMF,” Bill Tarpley, co-CEO of Mammoth Freighters, said. “As AviaAM expands its strategic focus in the cargo sector, the superior widebody operating economics of the Mammoth 777-300ERMF will perfectly complement their growing fleet of next generation freighters.”
The first and conformity 777-300ER of this order will commence the conversion process in early 2023 at Aspire MRO’s facility at Alliance Airport in Fort Worth, TX. Upon redelivery, the aircraft will be able to carry 99.79 tons of cargo on transatlantic routes and is expected to serve routes from Europe to the United States and/or China to Europe.
“We are pleased to begin collaborating with Mammoth, a Boeing licensee for the Boeing 777-300ER passenger to freighter conversions,” Tadas Goberis, chairman and CEO of AviaAM Leasing, said. “With a deeply experienced leadership team, state-of-the-art P2F conversion facilities and flexible attitude, I trust that together we will meet the demand for wide body converted freighters to replace aging ones and accommodate future growth across our group airlines’ fleet. Our new partnership exemplifies AviaAM’s strategic effort to expand our presence in the air cargo market, further strengthening our position as a reliable and world-class leasing and trading services provider.”
“The Mammoth 777-300ERMF is a fuel efficient, high-volume, heaving lifting long-range freighter that will reliably serve the global air cargo market for decades to come,” Bill Wagner, co-CEO of Mammoth Freighters, said. “We are grateful to partner with AviaAM and look forward to supporting their fleet growth initiatives with Mammoth 777-300ERMF freighters.”
