The aircraft will return to service after conversion and will be joining two other Asia Pacific 757-PCF’s converted by Precision and operating in the Asia Pacific theatre.

Stated Precision’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing Brian McCarthy “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.
