Pemco secures Air Incheon contract for 737-400 passenger-to-freighter conversion

PEMCO World Air Services (PEMCO), which performs Boeing 737 passenger-to-freighter aircraft conversions, has announced an agreement with South Korea-based Air Incheon for the P-to-F conversion of one B737-400 aircraft (MSN 25857). Air Incheon, which is currently operating one PEMCO-converted B737-400 (MSN 25190), will take redelivery of its latest aircraft in Q3 2017.

“We chose PEMCO to expand our fleet based on our experience with its B737-400 aircraft conversions,” shared YK Park, president and founder of Air Incheon. “We are pleased with the performance and recognize the quality, reliability, and value it brings to our company.”

Mike Andrews, PEMCO’s director of conversion programs, said “We’re honored that Air Incheon again chose us for its fleet expansion program. We look forward to supporting Air Incheon’s mission to become a leader in regional air cargo transport.”

Air Incheon’s B737-400 PEMCO-converted aircraft features a custom cargo loading system, up to 48,000 pounds of payload, and 4,600 cubic feet of total volume under PEMCO’s supplemental type certificate. The optimized center of gravity of PEMCO’s B737-400 freighter yields the highest possible usable payload and retains maximum best-in-class fuel efficiency for unbeatable range and operating economics.

Air Incheon, the first all-cargo airline in Korea, specializes in perishables, machinery, and dangerous goods. The company is highly focused on serving the Russia Far East market, in addition to local routes to Japan, China, and Mongolia.
