The US airframe conversion company Precision Conversions has won a contract to provide Air China Cargo Co, a joint venture between Air China and Cathay Pacific Airways, with four full 15-cargo position B757-200PCFs. The first aircraft was inducted for modification at the Taikoo Aircraft Engineering Co Ltd (TAECO) maintenance facility in Xiamen on 31 July. The second aircraft will commence modification in November. The remaining two aircraft are being placed in production slots for early 2014. All four aircraft will be used for express package transportation in China. Air China Cargo is based in Beijing, China and operates to 36 cities in 27 countries.
To date, Precision Conversions has redelivered 36 full 15 cargo position B757-200PCF freighters to customers operating in Europe, North and South America, India, Africa, and P.R. China. Precision also redelivered one B757-200PCF Combi aircraft variant earlier this year.
