Texel Air, an established private airline and MRO based in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has added a Boeing 737-700 FlexCombi to its fleet.

The 737 700 is a first of a kind aircraft conversion developed to provide the most versatile third party cargo charter solution available in the market today.

The aircraft arrived at the Company’s private hangar at the Bahrain International Airport where it was greeted by Kamal bin Ahmed Mohamed, Minister of Transportation & Telecommunications alongside other VIPs and the management and board members of Texel Air.

The aircraft, which will be based in the Kingdom of Bahrain, is unique in its ability to be configured in seven different ways for multiple purposes in a remarkably fast 48-hour time frame.

It can switch seamlessly to operate humanitarian, government, express integrator and commercial flights from major airports to smaller remote runways with configuration flexibility achieved without compromise in cargo volumes and customised mission capability. In addition to cargo, the aircraft is able to transport up to 24 people as well as offering the option for medical evacuation flights using two speciality medical beds installed on the aircraft.
