VILNIUS — Lithuania's ACMI specialist GetJet Airlines sold a Boeing 737-400 to the American Frontera Flight Holdings. The transaction was carried out by the British ACC Aviation's Dubai-based asset management subsidiary.

The 30-years-old aircraft with registration LY-MGC (MSN 24904) will be reconfigured from 168-seat passenger fit to dedicated freighter for onward lease to passenger and cargo airline Aeronaves TSM of Mexico.

Work on the freighter conversion is scheduled to start later this summer by Aeronautical Engineers of Miami, FL. It will see the addition of a cargo door on the forward left side of the fuselage, plus modification of the main deck to carry multi-cargo containers or pallets of up to 23 tonnes (23,000 kg.)

"Demand for freighter aircraft has increased significantly since the pandemic,” acknowledged Robert Sitta, Vice President Asset Management at ACC Aviation.

“We were therefore very pleased to be able to identify a suitable asset for Frontera Flight Holdings’ client so swiftly and conclude the sale at the end of January.”

“The B737 will become an integral part of our fleet once the conversion is complete, which will enable us to strengthen our position as leaders in the air cargo market and leverage the e-commerce demand between Mexico and Central America,” added Enrique Garza, Chief Executive Officer at Aeronaves TSM.
