PEMCO & China Postal Announce Boeing 737 Redelivery
Aircraft Marks 10th PEMCO Aircraft in CPA Fleet
TAMPA, Fla. (March 11, 2013) — Celebrating a decade-long partnership, China Postal Airlines (CPA) and PEMCO World Air Services (PEMCO) are pleased to announce the completion and redelivery of China Postal’s latest PEMCO-converted Boeing freighter.
This 737-400F (MSN 26337) is the 10th PEMCO-converted airplane for China’s national express mail service. This latest addition to CPA’s fleet is an 11-position high yield freighter — designed, built, certified and supported utilizing Boeing design data to ensure the reliability and effectiveness of the cargo modification. PEMCO’s 737-400F is capable of transporting nearly 6,000 ft³ of cargo weighing 24 tons. PEMCO’s innovative engineering allows full use of the aircraft’s structural payload due to optimized CG, avoiding costly fuel burning flight control trim. This remarkable feature is one of many distinctive attributes that set PEMCO conversions apart.
PEMCO has converted airplanes for CPA owned by some of the largest and best-known aircraft leasing companies in the world including Boeing Capital, International Lease Finance Corp, GECAS, and others. PEMCO and China Postal anticipate expanding their relationship, with additional information available in the near future.
“We are proud to support China Postal and grateful for the opportunity to contribute to their successful and rapid growth into a premier express freight carrier. CPA and PEMCO, together with our partners at HAECO Group (STAECO & TAECO), have forged an effective partnership which we anticipate will endure for years to come” stated PEMCO President Kevin Casey.
