Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has signed an agreement to carry out passenger-to-freighter (P2F) conversions for Cargojet Canada’s Cargo Airline. The agreement was signed as a result of the growing global demand for cargo aircraft and includes the conversion of four B777-300ER aircraft and additional options in the future.
IAI has recently signed a number of new agreements for cargo conversions, including converting B777-300ER aircraft for Emirates and establishing new conversion lines worldwide, including in Abu Dhabi, Ethiopia and other locations around the world. This agreement with Cargojet strengthens IAI’s strategy to expand its growing cargo conversion lines globally. 

Cargojet is a leading Canadian provider of time sensitive premium air cargo services to all major cities across North America, providing dedicated ACMI and international charter services and carries over 25,000,000 pounds of cargo weekly. Cargojet operates its network with a fleet of thirty-one aircraft and is a long-term IAI customer for aircraft conversions. Currently, IAI is converting the first B777-300ER aircraft for AerCap Cargo, who are also the co-investor on the programme, in a process which is expected to finish in 2022. This is the very first conversion of this model.
