The logistics companies are becoming cargo airlines and we help many cargo startups to get funding and suitable aircraft. The BBJ market will also grow due to increased securities at the airports.
Many of our clients, including governments, large logistics corporations and SMEs are therefore seeking an alternative and rapid solution compared to regular ocean shipping.

(a.) A partial passenger to cargo aircraft conversion (removal of interior, window covers, without the need for the more expensive and time-consuming cargo door installation, (3 to 4 month delivery time). This is a very fast and affordable solution for the short term (1-2 years) with an option to request a full conversion later while utilizing the already capable aircraft until then.
(b.) Should you already have capable aircraft but need to add extra capability to your fleet, our second offering might be the one fulfilling your needs
After partial conversion we offer four different options:
1. Line up the aircraft for a full cargo conversion, including a large cargo door installation. This way while in service (creating revenue), the airliner will be virtually in line for a full conversion, including a cargo door installation
2. Option to reverse the aircraft back into the original passenger configuration later
3. Continue to utilize as a partial converted aircraft
4. Sell the aircraft, once no longer needed (in a partially converted or passenger carrier format)
