First 767-800BCF conversion programme in China

Boeing and Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Company (Gameco) have announced plans to create additional capacity for the 767-300 Boeing converted freighter (BCF).


The agreement, which was presented by the two companies at the China international aviation & aerospace exhibition in Zhuhai, will expand freighter conversion capacity at Gameco, opening two new 767-300BCF conversion lines in 2022.


Gameco will be the first MRO in China to convert the 767-300BCF and the only MRO converting both the 767-300BCF and the 737-800BCF.


Earlier this year, the company announced plans to open a third 737-800BCF conversion line. Boeing forecasts 1,720 freighter conversions will be needed before 2041. Of those, 520 will be widebody conversions with Asia carriers. The 767-300BCF has over 95 orders and commitments. (ah)
