We have good cooperative relationship with Precision in the past 12 years, and we are delighted to extend this collaboration to A321-200PCF conversion. HAECO Xiamen is busy preparing to convert one B757-200PCF conversion line to A321-200PCF in the middle of the year and we look forward introducing multiple A321 conversion lines here then.”
