30 Sep 2015 - Boeing receives first commitment for 737-800BCF
Boeing has received the first commitment to order a converted freighter version of the 737-800 from a Chinese start-up airline, but the programme has yet to be launched. Boeing confirms that the Hangzhou YTO Express has signed a commitment to order the 737-800BCF. The company did not provide numbers, but a Chinese aviation news site reports the YTO commitment numbers 15 aircraft. YTO launched service on 26 September with a 737-300 cargo aircraft, the first of three the airline expects to receive. Meanwhile, Boeing is still building a business case for launching the freighter conversion of the 737-800, the company tells Flightglobal. Both Boeing and Pemco have been polling customers for interest in the type as the next-generation series of the 737 is replaced by the re-engined 737 Max. Boeing reportedly received an authority to offer the 737-800BCF last year, but has not publicly announced any commitments until the YTO deal. The company remains in discussions with multiple airlines about the type, Boeing says. "We look forward to launching the 737BCF program once we have met our launch criteria," Boeing adds.
