On August 8th, Israel Aerospace Industry held a global conference on the commencement of the first Boeing 777-300ER converted freighter in Tel Aviv.
AVIC Chengdu Civil Aircraft was invited to join the press conference through the webcast platform. At the meeting, IAI executives affirmed and thanked AVIC Chengdu Civil Aircraft for its work and the support on the modification kit.
In July 2020, AVIC Chengdu Civil Aircraft overcame the impact of COVID-19 and signed a contract with IAI for 11 work packages of the conversion project.
Based on successful experience in Boeing 747, 767, 737 converted freighters, AVIC Chengdu Civil Aircraft steadily promoted the project development through parallel workflows and delivered the first modified kit on time.
The Boeing 777-300ER converted freighter project was jointly launched by IAI and GE Commercial Aviation Services, aiming for the air cargo transportation gap due to COVID-19.
