Kahala Aviation Group has completed the acquisition of two Boeing 737s for freighter conversion.
The first aircraft, a 737-300 (MSN 28200) acquired from ILFC, will be converted into a freighter configuration by Pemco World Air Services.
The 1997-vintage aircraft is powered by CFM International CFM56-3C1 engines. It was previously operated by Indonesia’s Merpati.
The second aircraft, a 737-400 (MSN 24231), was purchased from GECAS, and will be converted into a freighter configuration by Aeronautical Engineers.
The 1990-vintage aircraft is powered by CFM International CFM56-3C1 engines. It was last operated by Russia’s Globus.
“With these acquisitions, Kahala Aviation is clearly emerging as one of the leading lessors of 737 freighter aircraft in the world,” says Kahala Aviation Holdings director Charles Graham.
