NEW DEAL TO CONVERT BOEING 757-200 TO COMBI

North American Airlines, a subsidiary of Global Aviation Holdings, and the aerospace division of Vision Technologies Systems, a subsidiary of ST Engineering, have entered into an agreement for the conversion of Boeing 757-200 passenger aircraft to Combi configuration.

“The Boeing 757 Combi will be utilized on routes where our customers require the shipment of heavy supplies as well as personnel,” said Brian Bauer, chief commercial officer of Global Aviation. “As a longtime operator of the passenger Boeing 757, North American will be able to offer customers a seamless upgrade using this modern and fuel-efficient platform.”

General (Retired) John G Coburn, chairman and chief executive officer of VT Systems, said: “This agreement is a vote of confidence in our strong MRO and engineering track record in the U.S. and our capability to offer tailored solutions to meet customers’ special operating requirements. We look forward to supporting North American Airlines with a complete solution – from design and development to implementing the conversion at our MRO facilities.”
