AviaAM Leasing, a global aviation holding company engaged in tailored aircraft leasing and trading services, has announced the delivery of a second Boeing 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighter to Bluebird Nordic – a rapidly growing Iceland-based cargo airline, offering ACMI and Full-service Cargo services.
As both companies are part of Avia Solutions Group, a leading global aerospace services group, the strategic synergy between AviaAM Leasing and Bluebird Nordic allows the lessee to continue accomplishing ambitious expansion plans.
The Boeing 737-800BCF aircraft was converted to freighter configuration by Boeing at the Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Company (GAMECO) facility in Guangzhou, China.
AviaAM Leasing plans to have 25 converted aircraft of different types in the upcoming four years.
Bláfugl ehf, d.b.a. Bluebird Nordic was established in 1999 with an Icelandic AOC. At present, Bluebird has seven Boeing 737-400s, one Boeing 737-300 and now two Boeing 737-800 cargo aircraft in operation.
Bluebird Nordic plans to increase its Boeing 737-800 fleet to 25 units by 2024.
At the end of December 2021, Bluebird Nordic concluded lease agreements for three Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. At present, the aircraft are in passenger configuration but will proceed for conversion in 2024 and will be utilized as cargo aircraft once the conversion is complete.
