By Aritra Banerjee

In a significant milestone, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has completed the conversion of the 100th B767-300 aircraft, becoming the world leader in modifications of this model. “This achievement highlights IAI’s leading role in the cargo conversion industry for over four decades and is a testament to IAI’s advanced capabilities, robust pace, and expanding capacity to provide customers worldwide with the most optimal freighter solution. The 100th B767-300 freighter was converted at IAI’s cargo conversion facility in Tel Aviv, Israel, before being delivered to the customer,” read an IAI press release issued on the development. 

“IAI began operating the B767-300 conversion line in Israel in 2007 together with M&B Conversions, a joint venture with Mitsui, and received the STC (Supplementary Type Certificate) in 2009. In 2017, IAI opened an additional B767-300 conversion facility in Mexico, increasing operations to meet global demand for the converted widebody aircraft. The converted B767-300 aircraft provides a competitive and cost-effective solution for customers seeking to expand their cargo fleet, and as air cargo traffic doubles in the next two decades and e-commerce continue rising, IAI will continue providing the best solution on the market,” the press release concluded.
