With demand for freight, and hence passenger to freighter conversions, forecast to grow significantly over the next 20 years, many of our customers are considering how to capitalise on this market opportunity. We are well placed to guide potential investors and aircraft owners through the required analysis to drive decisions and to offer an alternative option for mid-life aircraft that delivers a credible return on investment.
