53122 completed conversion at Commercial Jet’s Miami facility on Sept. 25, and upon joining TSM’s fleet, becomes the carrier’s eleventh freighter-converted MD-80F. TSM has at least one more MD-83 that will be inducted for conversion to freighter configuration in early 2020.
Alongside a growing MD-80SF fleet, TSM has also begun adding CRJ-200SFs. In September, TSM took redelivery of a freighter-converted CRJ-200SF, bringing the total number of the jets in TSM’s freighter fleet to five. The carrier is planning to induct a sixth CRJ-200 for conversion this month, and two more in 2020.
Based on recent flight activity for TSM-operated freighters, the carrier’s fleet service is utilized for a variety of time-critical and express missions. Many flights appear to cater to the cross-border automotive parts supply chain between Mexico and the United States.
