Boeing has started its next-generation 737-800 Boeing converted freighter (BCF) programme, which received orders and commitments for up to 55 conversions from seven customers.With the BCF programme, Boeing intends to convert passenger airplanes into freighter planes, increasing the economic lifespan of the airplane.
The company will modify its 737-800 aircraft, which is the first next-generation 737.The first delivery is scheduled in the fourth quarter of next year.
Although large freighters carry high-density cargo on long-range routes, the 737-800BCF will primarily be used to carry express cargo on domestic routes.

The 737-800 BCF can carry 23.9t of cargo with flying routes of 3,690km.
