Emirates SkyCargo completes one year of transporting urgently required cargo on passenger seats and in overhead bins

Emirates SkyCargo is marking the first anniversary of loading urgently required PPE, related supplies and other vital cargo on the seats and inside the overhead bins of its Boeing 777-300ER passenger aircraft.

Responding to the pressing demand for transporting PPE during the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in late April 2020, the freight division of Emirates adjusted its operating model to load select goods inside the aircraft cabin on passenger seats and in overhead bins to make additional room for urgent cargo on its flights.
