BBAM Orders 12 Additional 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighters

Boeing and BBAM Limited Partnership (BBAM) have announced that the lessor is expanding its 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter fleet with 12 additional firm orders.

BBAM is the world’s largest dedicated manager of investments in leased commercial jet aircraft providing over 200 airline customers in more than 50 countries with fleet and financing solutions over the last three decades, and the only significant manager in sector focused exclusively on generating investment returns on third party capital.

This agreement brings BBAM’s 737-800BCF orders and commitments to 31 as e-commerce and express cargo markets continue to drive strong customer demand for freighters.

According to Boeing, BBAM will be the first customer to have a 737-800BCF converted at Cooperativa Autogestionaria de Servicios Aeroindustriales (COOPESA), a Costa Rica-based maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider.

This follows an announcement made by Boeing in May stating that it would open two conversion lines at COOPESA in 2022.

President and CEO of BBAM, Steve Zissis said,The Boeing Converted Freighter program is extending the life and enhancing the value of the 737-800s in our fleet”.

We are growing our Boeing order book to meet the strong demand we see worldwide for narrow-body freighters, and we are proud to be the launch customer for the conversion lines at COOPESA”, He added.

In a separate deal announced in January, BBAM placed six firm orders and six options for the 737-800BCF.

“This most recent order underscores the continued strong demand for our market-leading freighter, and we are honored by BBAM’s continued confidence in Boeing,” said Jens Steinhagen, director of Boeing freighter conversions.

The 737-800BCF has won more than 200 orders and commitments from 16 customers.
