GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) is planning to convert a further 30 Boeing 737-800s into freighters. GECAS launched the 737-800 freighter program with Aeronautical Engineers (AEI) in 2015 and Boeing in 2016. Since then GECAS has provided each program with a prototype aircraft for modification at separate conversion facilities in Miami and Shanghai. All the feedstock aircraft will come from GECAS’ existing portfolio and converted when the aircraft end their current passenger leases from 2018 onward. GECAS currently owns approximately 220 passenger 737-800s that are distributed across ~25 countries. The ASL Group and West Atlantic Group have already become GECAS
