The booming e-commerce industry is fueling a need for more cargo aircraft to carry packages around the world.
Instead of buying new aircraft, many cargo carriers are choosing to purchase former passenger planes and convert them to freighters.
It’s a months-long process that can cost upwards of $10 million for larger aircraft. But the financial savings make it worth it compared to purchasing new planes.
Cargo airlines such as Amazon Prime Air have been among the top customers for converted aircraft like the Boeing 767-300ER and 737-800F.
