GECAS and Boeing have reached an agreement for 35 additional 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighters at the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow.
The deal, which includes 20 firm orders and an option for 15 more, would take GECAS’ 737-800BCF order book from 15 to 50 and enable GECAS to serve the growing express air cargo market. The commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric [NYSE: GE] is the launch customer of the new 737-800BCF.
It took delivery of the first converted jet in April and leased it to a Swedish cargo carrier. This agreement, which is subject to GECAS board approval, would take the total commitments for the 737-800BCF program to 80 from more than half a dozen customers.Email Post to a Friend
