MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO — Canadian cargo operator Cargojet has signed an agreement with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) for the passenger to freighter conversion for four B777-300ER aircraft.

The Israeli aerospace company has recently signed some new agreements for cargo conversions, including converting B777-300ER aircraft for Emirates and establishing new conversion lines in Abu Dhabi, Ethiopia, and other locations around the world. This agreement with Cargojet strengthens IAI’s global strategy to expand its growing cargo conversion lines.

Cargojet provides air cargo services to all major cities across North America, providing dedicated ACMI and International Charter services, and carries over 25,000,000 pounds (12500 tons) of cargo weekly. Cargojet operates a fleet of 31 aircraft and is a long-term IAI customer for aircraft conversions.

IAI is currently converting the first B777-300ER aircraft for Irish AerCap Cargo, which is expected to enter service by the end of this year in 2022. It is the first Boeing 777-300ER P2F conversion in the world.
