Alaska Air Cargo introduces innovative in-seat containers to carry more freight

Alaska Air Cargo is introducing a new in-seat package stowage system to allow full use of an Alaska Airlines passenger aircraft in a cargo-only configuration. As the North American launch customer for HAECO’s design, the interior package stowage containers allow Alaska Air Cargo to fill the main cabin passenger seats with an additional 13,500 pounds of cargo on top of what a passenger-only cargo flight can carry.

Alaska Air Cargo has used passenger aircraft previously with limited freighter service, but until now, was unable to use the passenger seats. This innovative, FAA-approved- design allows cargo personnel to use all available space on the main deck for essential goods like mail, medical equipment, e-commerce packages and other freight.
