    <p>Israel Aircraft Industries' Bedek Aviation Group and Italy's Aeronavali are squaring up in the Boeing 767 passenger-to-freighter (PTF) conversion market, following the latter's signing of an exclusive licensing deal with Boeing.</p> <p>The Alenia Aeronautica/Finmeccanica division announced the deal to use the Boeing amended type certificate for 767 conversions last week in Seattle. The initial agreement covers the 767-200, but this is expected to be broadened to cover the -300, for which the major market is anticipated. "We are talking to several potential launch customers about -200 conversions," says Aeronavali commercial director Gianni Tritto. </p> <p>According to industry sources, Miami-based Boeing 727 freight operator Capital Cargo International Airlines is a leading candidate to launch the programme. Certification of the first Aeronavali 767-200 conversion and delivery to the launch customer is expected by mid-2005, says Tritto.</p> <p>IAI launched its 767-200 conversionhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Aeronavali-lands-exclusive-767-PTF-licensing-deal-with-Boeing-172150/

What are the prospects for recovery?</p> <p>Although its recent financial struggles and corresponding business moves have been more public than those of its rivals, Atlas Air is not the only cargo carrier these days scurrying to offset a rapidly shrinking wet-lease customer base. The worst market conditions in at least a decade have set off a wave of cuts and consolidation among a group of around 20 mostly little-known jet operators. Freighters ranging in size from Boeing 727s to 747s have been parked, expansion plans have been shelved, and many companies are seeking joint ventures or new investors.</p> <p>Faced with an overcrowded playing field and, in some cases, the threat of liquidation, many wet-lease cargo carriers are now a fraction of their former size. Some have left the wet-lease business for smaller niches, and a few are under new ownership. "Therehttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Loads-of-trouble-144108/

But it is unclear to what extent wet-lease operators are ready to upgrade to the aircraft</p> <p>Several small wet-lease carriers - including Air Transport International (ATI), Capital Cargo International Airlines and International Cargo Charters (ICC) - have expressed interest in leasing A300-600s. But industry officials say FedEx is the lead candidate for the Intrepid aircraft and potential GECAS conversions. The parcel carrier operates 36 factory-built A300-600Fs, and took delivery in January of the first of eight A300-600s being converted byhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/A300-600-to-enter-US-fray-144110/
