Top cargo conversion company, PEMCO World Air Services (PEMCO), has redelivered its first B737-400 passenger-to-freighter (P2F) aircraft (MSN 25113) to Salam Aviation. The P2F aircraft for Salam Aviation, an aviation consultancy specializing in acquisitions, financing and logistics support, is set to be in service in the coming weeks.
Performed at PEMCO’s headquarters at Tampa International Airport, the conversion was completed in only 90 days, adding to the company’s healthy 2016 on-time record.
“We chose PEMCO based on their quality, reliability and on-time record, and they sure delivered,” said Rami Kayali of Salam Aviation. “We look forward to providing our customers with more PEMCO-converted aircraft and our long partnership ahead.”
PEMCO Director of Conversion Programs Mike Andrews added, “We’re here to provide our customers with top-quality converted aircraft that deliver unparalleled profits. I’m excited for the opportunity to continue working with Rami and Salam Aviation for years to come.”
The newly PEMCO-converted aircraft features 11 pallet positions, up to 48,000 pounds of payload, and 4,600 cubic feet of total volume. The optimized center of gravity of PEMCO’s B737-400 freighter yields the highest possible usable payload and retains maximum best-in-class fuel efficiency for unbeatable range and operating economics.
PEMCO’s 60-plus customers select the company’s passenger-to-freighter conversion for its superior cargo door and system, superior operating functions, on-time turnaround, and a track record of 2 million hours of safe, reliable operation.
