Saltchuk Aviation orders up to four additional 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighters

Saltchuk Aviation has placed an order for up to four more 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighters (BCFs). The deal includes three firm orders and one option for the efficient medium wide-body freighter.

“We continue to see long-term air cargo trends that support fleet growth in the markets served by our three air cargo brands, and are excited to expand our partnership with Boeing,” said Betsy Seaton, President and CEO of Saltchuk Aviation. “Converting these 767-300ER will bring highly reliable capacity to our network, and backed by Boeing’s OEM expertise, we expect these freighters to operate in our fleet for the next 15-20 years.

Saltchuk Aviation is most widely known for its three cargo operating brands: Aloha Air Cargo, Northern Air Cargo and StratAir. The family of companies provide services to Hawaii and Alaska, as well as destinations throughout North America, Central America, the Caribbean and South America.

Saltchuk Aviation placed its first order with Boeing for four firm 767-300BCFs in early 2021. The first 767-300BCF as part of the initial deal was delivered to the carrier earlier this month. Saltchuk Aviation’s carriers have operated 767 converted freighters in their respective fleets alongside 737 freighters since 2016.
