Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services has conducted a door cutting ceremony for the first 737-300 passenger-to-freighter (PTF) conversion at its hangars in Shanghai Pudong Airport. The aircraft was inducted in December from Kenya Airways, Boeing Shanghai’s launch customer for the programme. The modification is to be conducted under a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) developed by Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI). The conversion is currently scheduled for completion in March 2013. Boeing Shanghai is a joint venture between Boeing, Shanghai Airport Authorities and China Eastern Airlines.
