The re-delivery honor goes to Dublin, Ireland-based ASL Aviation with the 11-pallet position B737-400SF (MSN 25097).

“This milestone represents another important achievement in AEI’s history,” said Roy Sandri, AEI President. “The AEI B737-400SF has been an exceptionally successful freighter for not only ASL, but for all of our leasing and operator customers world-wide.”
AEI’s B737-400SF shall provide ASL Aviation with a highly flexible Ancra CLS capable of carrying multiple ULD’s including:
(10) 88”x125” ULDs in P1 to P10 or
