Aeronautical Engineers has redelivered the first B737-800SF freighter conversion to Nigeria-based Allied Air.

In March of this year, Allied Air entered into an agreement with AEI to provide the company with two B737-800SF freighter conversions, with an option for two additional conversions. The delivered freighter (MSN 36846) is the youngest 737-800 in the world converted to date. Additionally, Allied Air has become the first airline in Africa to own and operate a B737-800SF on the continent.

Allied Air has recently used its existing fleet of freighter aircraft to assist the Nigerian government in distributing much needed medical supplies to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic, thereby helping to save countless lives in the nation. Supplies transported include masks, PPE and ventilators. Allied Air has provided this service to the Nigerian government free of charge.

All modifications were completed by the authorised AEI Conversion Centre, Commercial Jet, in Miami, Florida.
