Cebu Pacific: Converted turboprop freighters give carrier unmatched capabilities in the Philippines

    Cebu Pacific president and CEO Lance Gokongwei stated (04-Sep-2018) the addition of ATR 72-500 converted freighter aircraft to its fleet will allow it to “offer cargo capacity that no other carrier in the Philippines can provide”. The carrier signed an agreement with Sabena technics and IPR Conversions to covert two of its ATR 72-500 passenger aircraft into freighter aircraft. Modifications will include the installation of both bulk-load and large cargo door, allowing standard containers and pallets. [more – original PR]
