GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) has agreed with Boeing on the conversion of 11 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) options to firm orders and addition of nine more options to the GECAS Cargo order book.

This recent order update brings GECAS total order book for the type to 74 (60 firm and 14 options). The 20 in this agreement are scheduled to complete conversions between 2022 and 2024.

“The versatility and reliability of these freighters are appealing to our air cargo customers, not to mention the greater efficiency, lower operational costs and better environmental credentials for the growing express and e-commerce cargo market,” said Richard Greener, SVP and Manager, GECAS Cargo.

To date, Boeing has delivered 23 of the converted 737-800 next-generation (NG) freighters to GECAS for its leasing customers.
