HAECO Xiamen has completed and redelivered its first Airbus A321-200PCF converted freighter with supplemental type certificate (STC) partner 321 Precision Conversions.
HAECO Xiamen, a member of the HAECO Group, has been an authorised Precision conversion centre since 2010.
To minimise downtime, HAECO Xiamen said it conducted full freighter conversions in parallel with heavy maintenance checks and other modifications. Its on-site quality assurance teams prepare daily reports “as part of a comprehensive quality control process to ensure that work is conducted to the highest standards”, the company said.
“HAECO Xiamen started collaboration with Precision on the Boeing 757-200PCF conversion in 2010. We have good cooperative relationship with Precision in the past 12 years, and we are delighted to extend this collaboration to A321-200PCF conversion,” said HAECO Xiamen’s chief executive officer Kevin Guan.
“HAECO Xiamen is busy preparing to convert one Boeing 757-200PCF conversion line to A321-200PCF in the middle of the year and we look forward introducing multiple A321 conversion lines here then.”
321 Precision Conversions’ president Gary Warner commented: “Our long-term relationship with HAECO Xiamen has proven them to be a consistent performer on the Boeing 757-200PCF programme and now on the A321-200PCF.
“Their experienced and professional team has done a remarkable job on the first A321-200PCF conversion in China. We look forward to many more successful redeliveries.”
