On April 26, a delivery ceremony was held at GAMECO to celebrate the first 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) completed for BOCOMM Leasing and China Postal Airlines. It also marked the first time that GAMECO has completed freighter conversion work for a 737-800 airplane registered under CAAC.
“Everybody has made greatest efforts for the project. Our team worked hard during Chinese New Year, caught up with the schedule, obtained all necessary clearances and approvals from customs and secured aviation materials and workforce, which ensured the successful delivery of the 737-800BCF ahead of schedule” said Mr. Norbert Marx, General Manager of GAMECO.
The delivery of GAMECO’s the first CAAC-registered 737-800BCF is another milestone in the partnership between GAMECO and Boeing, demonstrating the GAMECO's ability to respond quickly to market trends and needs and proving the competence, professionalism and customer commitment of the entire GAMECO Boeing project team.
Converting a 737-800 to a BCF is a major conversion project requiring heavy workload and complex technology. The modification process involves a wide range of professional areas and requires strong support from multiple disciplines.
