Two More Boeing 737-800BCF Conversion Lines to Open in 2022

(10 May 2021)
As express and e-commerce markets continue to drive
strong demand for production and converted freighters, Boeing
has established a new partnership with a Costa
Rica-based maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider to
create additional conversion capacity for the 737-800 Boeing
Converted Freighter.

Boeing will open two 737-800BCF conversion lines
with Cooperativa Autogestionaria de Servicios Aeroindustriales
(COOPESA) in Alajuela, Costa Rica.

The first of the new conversion
lines is expected to open in early 2022, with the second
anticipated later that year.


Boeing forecasts 1,500 freighter
conversions will be needed over the next 20 years to meet growing
demand. Of those, 1,080 will be standard-body conversions, with
nearly 30% of that demand coming from North America and Latin
America.

“COOPESA has demonstrated the technical expertise
and commitment to quality and execution necessary to help us meet
the growing customer demand for the 737-800BCF, including in the
Americas,” said Jens Steinhagen, director of Boeing freighter
conversions. “Boeing is pleased to have COOPESA join our team of
MRO partners as we deliver our market-leading converted freighters
to customers around the world.”

Currently, Boeing converts 737-800 passenger
airplanes to freighters at three locations: Boeing Shanghai
Aviation Services (BSAS) in Shanghai, China; Guangzhou Aircraft
Maintenance Engineering Company Limited (GAMECO) in Guangzhou,
China; and Taikoo (Shandong) Aircraft Engineering Co. Ltd.
(STAECO) in Jinan, China.

To date, the 737-800BCF has won more than 180
orders and commitments from 15 customers on four continents. In
March, Boeing re-delivered the 50th 737-800BCF since entering into
service in 2018.

“We are honored that Boeing has chosen COOPESA as
a strategic partner to provide conversion services for the
737-800BCF,” said Kenneth Waugh, CEO of COOPESA. “We look forward
to helping Boeing meet market demand with the technical quality
and skilled workforce that has characterized COOPESA in its 58
years of operation.”
