Bedek, Mexicana To Open 767 Conversion Site

The Bedek Aviation Group, responding to a surge in used-freighter demand, is teaming with Mexicana MRO Services to open a Boeing 767-300 conversion site in Mexico City, the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) subsidiary announced. The first aircraft, part of an order for “a number of” conversions, is expected to be inducted by July 1, Bedek said.

“We are experiencing a period of increased demand for conversion into freighters, and Bedek is up to its neck in work,” said Yosi Melamed, Bedek executive v-p and general manager. “The collaboration with Mexicana has significant business potential and is good news for both parties,” he continued, adding that such arrangements “allow us to make time for development activities and reduce the workload in Israel to provide faster and better service to our many customers.”

Mexicana, a subcontractor on the project, sent dozens of employees to IAI’s Israeli headquarters for training. IAI will retain engineering authority and overall responsibility for the conversions.
