AviaAM Leasing last week signed an agreement for six 777-300ERMF converted freighters with Mammoth Freighters and is set to become the launch customer of the programme, a press release announced.
The first 777-300ER of this order will commence the conversion process in early 2023 at Aspire MRO’s facility at Alliance Airport in Fort Worth, Texas. Upon redelivery, the aircraft will be able to carry 99.79 tonnes of cargo on transatlantic routes and is expected to serve EU-US or China-EU trunk routes.
Including this order, Mammoth now has firm orders for twenty-nine 777 freighter conversions for multiple customers, and another twelve 777 freighter conversions in advanced stages of commitment, a total of 41 aircraft in its order book.
AviaAM, meanwhile, is making major investments in multiple freighter types as it continues with its expansion plans in the air cargo market. The aviation holding company earlier completed multiple 737-800 passenger-to-freighter conversions this year,
“Our new partnership exemplifies AviaAM’s strategic effort to expand our presence in the air cargo market, further strengthening our position as a reliable and world-class leasing and trading services provider,” commented Tadas Goberis, the Chairman and CEO of AviaAM Leasing.
