Air Algerie commit to Boeing Converted Freighters programme
Air Algerie, based in Algiers, has signed a commitment with Boeing for two 737-800BCFs.
"We have received very positive response from the market for Boeing's 737-800, as well as the 767 freighter conversion programmes," said Rick Anderson, vice president of sales and marketing, Boeing Commercial Aviation Services. "As our customers expand their freighter services and seek to improve fleet efficiencies, they are coming to Boeing for their freighter needs because of the quality and value we provide."
Boeing's freighter conversion programmes transition passenger aircraft into freighters, extending the economic life of the airplane.
Boeing launched the 737-800BCF programme in February. Aircraft will be modified into freighters at select facilities located near conversion demand.
