WALTHAM, Mass. -- As the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to ripple throughout the aerospace industry, Raytheon announced the company now plans on cutting 15,000 commercial aerospace and general corporate jobs, 6,500 more jobs from their previous 8,500 estimate. This information comes from the company's chief executive Greg Hayes while speaking at Morgan Stanley's virtual Laguna Conference on September 16. Hayes notes that the cuts come from the troubled state of the industry in the wake of global shutdowns, consumer unease with flight, and a sharp decline in Raytheonb's commercial aviation aftermarket sales.

Raytheon expects the job cuts will reduce subsidiary Pratt & Whitney's selling, general and administrative expenses by 20% and cut those expenses at subsidiary Collins Aerospace by 12%. This reduction is the beginning of larger reductions. The company expects to reduce its amount of office space globally about 20-25% over the next four to five years. Raytheon's commercial aerospace business is attempting to cut about $2 billion in costs this year and save $4 billion through cash-conservation strategies including but not limited to getting rid of inventory.

SEATTLE - Boeing announced a firm order from an unidentified customer for two 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighters (BCF), as well as agreements to open additional conversion lines in Guangzhou, China, and Singapore to meet strong market demand.

Based on the popular Next-Generation 737, the 737-800BCF is primarily used to carry express cargo on domestic or short-haul routes. The airplane is capable of carrying up to 23.9 tonnes (52,800 pounds) and flying up to 2,000 nautical miles (3,750 kilometers).

The 737-800BCF now has 134 orders and commitments.

"The freighter conversion program is an excellent way to double the life of an airplane and provide operators with an economical way to replace less efficient freighters," said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing for Boeing. "By working with our partners to add freighter conversion capacity, we look forward to meeting the strong demand in this market segment and helping our customers scale their operations."

The new 737-800BCF line at Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Company Limited (GAMECO) is scheduled to open in early 2021, marking the MRO’s second conversion line for the market-leading 737-800BCF. To date, Boeing has delivered 36 737-800BCF to more than 10 operators across four continents.

Boeing will also add a second conversion line for its widebody converted freighter, the 767-300BCF, at ST Engineering’s facility in Singapore. The second line is scheduled to open later this year. The 767-300BCF has virtually the same cargo capability as the 767-300F production freighter with up to 56.5 tonnes (124,600 pounds) of payload and flying up to 3,350 nautical miles (6,190 kilometers).
