Chinese MRO Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Co. (Gameco) will provide passenger-to-freighter (PTF) aircraft conversion services for Boeing 737 specialist PEMCO World Air Services.
Announced Thursday (July 6), GAMECO will carry out PTF projects on the -700, -400 and -300 variants of the 737 for operators in the Asia-Pacific region.
Gameco becomes the fifth global PEMCO PTF partner and the third in China, joining China-based Staeco and TAECO, Costa Rica-based Coopesa, and Canada’s KF Aerospace in providing conversion services on behalf of the Florida-based company.
Gameco general manager Norbert Marx said: “PEMCO is a key player in the conversion market, especially in the Asian-Pacific region, and Gameco is one of the leading MROs in China. We bring a huge capacity, vast structural experiences and broad capabilities into this partnership.”
PEMCO has added to its PTF offering the past few months and announced its 737-700 FlexCombo and full-freighter conversions programs in April 2017.
