ASL Aviation Holdings DAC (ASL) firmed 10 B737-800 Boeing Converted Freighters (BCF) with additional 10 on purchase rights.
Boeing secured 120 orders and commitments, from eight customers for this world’s first Next-Generation 737-800 freighter conversion.
Operating on six continents, ASL provides network solutions to express freight integrators, transporting more than 357,000 metric tonnes of cargo in 2018.
Boeing recently inaugurated new conversion lines at Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services (BSAS) and Taikoo (Shandong) Aircraft Engineering Company (STAECO), while looking to expand further.
The program is committed to more than double 737-800BCF output this year, going from eight conversions in 2018 to 17 in 2019.
