Aeronautical Engineers, Inc. (AEI) announced the company entered an agreement to provide Nauru Airlines with a 10-pallet position B737-300SF freighter conversion.
The flag carrier airline of the Republic of Nauru will use the AEI B737-300SF freighter to transport fresh food, mail, medicines and other freight from various points in the Pacific.

The AEI-converted, 10-pallet configuration B737-300SF freighter offers a main deck payload of up to 42,900lbs (19,460kg) and incorporates an Ancra CLS capable of carrying:
- Eight 88”x125” Full Height AAA Containers or pallets
