Garuda Indonesia and GECAS have entered into a lease agreement for two 737-800 Boeing-converted freighters (BCF).

The passenger-converted aircraft are slated to be phased in mid-2020 and will provide additional capacity to Cargo Garuda Indonesia.

“GECAS is excited to provide these converted 737-800 freighters to Garuda as they expand their dedicated cargo fleet,” stated Richard Greener, GECAS’ SVP & manager Cargo Aircraft Group.

Adding that he was looking forward to bringing the aircraft to its fleet, Mohamad Iqbal, Garuda Indonesia director of cargo and business development, added: “These newly converted 737-800 freighters will assist our growing operations as well as expanding our cargo program.”
