321 Precision Conversions will convert four more A321-200PCFs for Greenwich Highland Aviation and Zetland Capital Partners as part of a top-up order [FATs 007087-7090].
The aircraft will begin conversion in the first quarter of 2023, but 321 Precision Conversions could not immediately confirm which maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities it would use to convert the four aircraft.
This is the second time the joint venture between the Miami-based Greenwich Highland and the London-based Zetland have ordered A321 conversion slots with Precision.
The joint venture entered the A321F leasing market for the first time last year, pledging to convert two aircraft for lease to Global Crossing Airlines.
The first aircraft in the deal, the 2001-vintage unit 1438 (ex-AtlasGlobal), arrived at the HAECO Americas facility in Lake City (LCQ) in late 2021 ahead of induction in January 2022. The second unit (1953, ex-AtlasGlobal), a 2003-vintage aircraft, will begin conversion in June 2022. Redeliveries are expected in July and December 2022.
It is currently unclear if there are customer commitments behind the four additional conversions. Greenwich Highland could not be reached for comment, but Global Crossing previously told Cargo Facts that it expected to lease two more A321PCFs from Greenwich Highland.
Precision’s A321 conversion lines are busy. Last week, U.A.E.-based Aerovista said it had selected Precision to covert two A321-200s it acquired in 2021. Precision expects to begin converting the two 2001-vintage units (1451 and 1503) in the first and second quarter of 2023.
Precision previously announced plans to expand its A321-200PCF conversion capabilities from five lines to twelve in 2022.
