Air China Cargo has taken delivery of the carrier's first 747-400 Boeing Converted Freighter, the first of three 747-400BCFs ordered by the airline. The airplane was converted from an Air China 747-400 Combi.

"Our 747-400BCFs will provide increased efficiency compared to our 747-200Fs and bring greater operational commonality with our newer 747-400 Freighters," said Air China Cargo Vice President Xiao Ping. "We are confident knowing that Boeing managed the overall conversion and will provide outstanding support as we operate the airplane."

Air China Cargo is receiving the 37th 747-400BCF redelivery and the eighth conversion from a combi model. The airplane is also the 29th to be converted at the TAECO facility. The second conversion for Air China Cargo also is under way at TAECO.

Nine carriers have ordered 49 747-400BCFs.

Modifications for the combi-to-freighter conversion include a strengthened main-deck floor, full main-deck lining installation, provisions for a new cargo handling system and complete revisions to the airplane systems. The 747-400BCF has positions for 30 pallets on the main deck - volume which is comparable to the 747-400 production freighter.
