Tasman Cargo Airlines to operate the former Air Greenland Boeing 757-200 for DHL

Tasman Cargo Airlines (formerly Asian Express Airlines) (Sydney), a contract supplier for DHL, will replace its existing Boeing 727-200F freighter which has reached its retirement age. The replacement aircraft will be a Boeing 757-200 PCF freighter.

Precision Conversion has been awarded the contract to provide DHL with a full 15-pallet position 757-200 PCF freighter. The 1992 ex-Air Greenland, Rolls-Royce powered, Boeing 757-236 (msn 25620) was acquired for conversion at the end of March and will be redelivered in June 2011. The aircraft will be modified by Flightstar Aircraft Services located in Jacksonville, Florida. Air Greenland operated the airliner as OY-GRL.

Tasman Cargo currently operates between Sydney and Auckland.
