SF orders multiple 767 Boeing converted freighters

SF Airlines has placed an order for an undisclosed number of Boeing 767-300ER passenger-to-freighter conversions. SF Airlines will accept its first redelivered 767 in the second half of 2015.  The 767 Boeing Converted Freighter offers an intercontinental range capability suited for the mid-sized freighter market.


Airwork orders seven AEI Boeing 737-400SF conversions

Airwork, a new Zealand company, has selected AEI to provide two firm and five optional Boeing 737-400SF 11-pallet configuration passenger-to-freighter conversions. Airwork will make the freighter aircraft available to its ACMI and dry lease customers. As part of Airwork’s fixed-wing dry lease expansion plan, it has recently committed to purchasing six Boeing 737-400s from a major international airline to add to the one aircraft previously acquired. Airwork has taken delivery of the first two aircraft and will accept the next four progressively over the next six months.


Boeing 747-400 consigned to VAS Aero Services

VAS Aero Services, an aviation logistics and aftermarket services company, received a 747-500 with PW4056 engines on consignment for teardown from Boeing. This will be the 32nd teardown that VAS has managed for Boeing since 1992 via a contract extending through 2020.
