SEATTLE — A Hong Kong-based regional airline has bought two used Boeing 747s and plans to remodel them for use as freighters.
Boeing Airplane Services will provide the parts kits for the job, which will be done by Take (Xiamen) Aircraft Engineering Co. in Xiamen, China, part of Boeing’s worldwide network of modification and engineering facilities.
Dragonair is buying the jumbo jets from Singapore Air as part of its efforts to beef up service between Hong Kong and Europe. The airline’s cargo business accounts for 21 percent of its revenues now, a figure that should climb to 30 percent once the new planes are delivered, the company said.
