Flightstar Aircraft Services was recently awarded a program to
convert ten B727-200 aircraft, owned by BATA, LLC (a joint venture
between Boeing Capital and ATA Holdings) from passenger to
freighter configuration. The conversions include a "D" level
maintenance check for each airplane. The conversion program will
continue through the second quarter of 2005.
"The announcement of
this program, demonstrates our team's commitment to consistently
delivering a quality product and our continued dedication to
customer satisfaction", stated Jerry Hernandez, Flightstar's
President. "We are extremely pleased to be awarded this program
from ASTAR Air Cargo."
The ten aircraft will join ASTAR Air Cargo's fleet of forty
aircraft. Earlier this year, Flightstar (Jacksonville, FL)
completed conversions for four B727 aircraft also being operated by
ASTAR Air Cargo. Upon completion of this program, Flightstar will
have completed twenty-three (23) freighter conversions since
commencing business in April, 2000.
