Ohio-based Interjet West is growing its fleet of classic aircraft and has added two 737-300Fs.
The two units (23569 and 23578) were both previously in operation with West Atlantic UK, on lease from Vx Capital, and arrived March 21 at Interjet West’s headquarters in Toledo (TOL), Ohio.
Vx Capital confirmed to Cargo Facts that it recently sold units 23569 and 23578 to Interjet West.
The two 737s were both deregistered from the U.K. and transferred to the U.S. on March 23, according to the Civil Aviation Authority’s register.
Unit 23569 is a 1986-vintage aircraft, while unit 23578 is of 1987 vintage. Both aircraft began in passenger service with Continental Airlines prior to their freighter conversion and operation by TNT Airways before subsequently being acquired by Vx Capital.
The freighters are the second and third 737s in Interjet West’s fleet of classic aircraft, which includes a 1987-vintage 737-300SF (23383, ex-Toll Aviation) and a 1976-vintage 727-200F (20994).
Interjet West’s 737 Classic adoption is the latest for U.S. airlines so far in 2022 after Northern Aviation Services added an eighth 737 Classic.
737 Classics continue to be popular in places like Indonesia, with Black Stone becoming the sixth in the country to operate the type following Rimbun Air, which added its second 737-300F in January 2022.
