[January 24th, 2022] HAECO Xiamen has signed an agreement with 321 Precision Conversions to provide passenger-to-freighter conversion for its A321-200PCF programme. Since 2009, HAECO Xiamen has partnered with Precision on Boeing 757-200 passenger-to-freighter conversions, having completed 26 such converted freighters.
The A321 aircraft passenger-to-freighter conversion work will be performed at HAECO Xiamen’s facility, beginning in February 2022. Meanwhile, HAECO Americas commences provision of conversion service to 321 Precision Conversions at HAECO’s Lake City, Florida facility starting from January 2022. The two geographical locations will bring benefits and flexibility to A321-200PCF programme while more choices are available for airline customers.
Gary Warner, President of 321 Precision Conversions, stated: “Since 2009, HAECO Xiamen has been a great partner on our B757-200PCF programme demonstrating high quality and efficiency. Expanding the A321-200PCF conversions into HAECO Xiamen was an easy decision as we continue to expand conversion kit capacity to meet high customer demand. We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
Jacqueline Jiang, Chief Operating Officer of HAECO Xiamen, said: “The partnership with Precision started in 2009. Thanks to Precision for their trust, we are delighted to see our cargo conversion partnership extended from Boeing 757 to Airbus 321.
