Asia Pacific Airlines to add Boeing 757 converted freighter to fleet
ASIA Pacific Airlines has acquired a Boeing 757-200 for freighter conversion
ASIA Pacific Airlines has acquired a Boeing 757-200 for freighter conversion. The aircraft (MSN 25140) conversion will be performed by Precision Aircraft Solutions' partner Flightstar Aviation in Florida, with re-delivery scheduled to take 120 days.
The aircraft will join Asia Pacific's two other Boeing 757 passenger-converted-freighters (PCF) and operate in the region, London's Air Cargo News reported.
Precision sales vice president Brian McCarthy said: 'Asia Pacific's transition from 727 operations to the 757 has been remarkable and has given them significant range and reach with the necessary performance, flexibility and fuel savings to operate in this demanding environment. This has transformed their route structure as a direct result of the added payload and range.'
'We are thrilled to have a third PCF aircraft joining our fleet as the demand for our service expands. The 757 performs extremely well under the demanding route structure of Pacific Theatre operations requiring long range and high payload,' said Asia Pacific Airlines president Adam Ferguson.
