Aloha Air Cargo has added purchased two B737-300SF cargo aircraft as the Hawaii-based air cargo carrier implements a plan to replace its fleet of older aircraft. The first B737-300 was recently placed into operation, while the second aircraft is undergoing its initial maintenance check and is scheduled to be delivered to Honolulu during the third quarter.
The new aircraft has nine full cargo positions totaling upwards of 17,690 Kg of payload capacity, which is two positions and nearly 4,536 kg more than the older B737-200 aircraft that it is replacing, Aloha Air Cargo said. The new aircraft is also more fuel efficient and has quieter engines, it added.
“Our current fleet of four B737- 200 aircraft has served Aloha and our predecessor very well over the last several decades, but timing is key to begin transitioning to a newer airframe,” Pat Rosa, chief operating officer for Aloha Air Cargo, said in a statement.
“We are excited to invest in the future of our company and its employees by adding the 737-300s to our fleet.”
