As the COVID-19 pandemic requires more of a cargo-based focus, Singapore Airlines (SQ) has taken the decision to convert two of its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft to carry cargo in the passenger cabins.

It is understood that the airlines were recently converted and completed its first flights to Tokyo Narita (NRT) from Singapore (SIN) on November 5. 264 passenger seats that were configured on each of these aircraft were subsequently removed, offering an additional 12% in cargo capacity per flight.
