Boeing, Joramco to establish Boeing freighter conversion line in Jordan

  • Joramco will be the first MRO supplier in the Middle East to support future Boeing freighter conversions of both domestic and foreign aircraft
  • Joramco is a sister company of DAE Capital, a top 10 aircraft lessor globally with a fleet of approximately 550 owned, managed, committed, and mandated-to-manage aircraft

Boeing and Joramco have announced an agreement to establish a new Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) line in Amman, Jordan.

Joramco will be the first MRO supplier in the Middle East supporting future Boeing freighter conversions of both domestic and foreign aircraft. Located in Amman, Jordan, Joramco is geographically situated to support future 737-800BCF customers operating across the Middle East, Europe, North Africa, and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). 

Joramco is a subsidiary of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise, which also has a leasing division with a fleet of around 550 aircraft leased to approximately 120 airlines in more than 60 countries.

The global freighter fleet is expected to grow by 65% to more than 3,700 in 2042, according to Boeing’s Commercial Market Outlook. This growth will require more than 2,800 production and converted freighter deliveries over the next two decades, including around 1,300 standard-body freighter conversions, such as the 737-800BCF.
