Collins Aerospace offers quick-turn cargo conversion

By Damian Brett

Collins Aerospace Systems has launched a new quick-turn conversion product to quickly re-configure passenger aircraft into a cargo setup.

The conversion, available for any passenger aircraft model, can be completed in as few as seven days and involves removing seats to allow a  higher volume of cargo carriage on the main deck floor.

“The aircraft can easily be converted back to a passenger configuration when the airline desires,” Collins said. “Cabin reconfiguration solutions may be implemented with the FAA or EASA approvals.”

“The current situation has increased the need for airlines to deliver critical medical goods to locations around the globe,” said Trevor Skelly, general manager, Integration Engineering for Collins Aerospace.

“Collins Aerospace is committed to using our cabin conversion expertise to assist our customers and ensure the important work of aiding the world in the fight against this pandemic continues.”

While airlines continue to utilise their aircraft as “passenger freighters” the trend has been slowing in recent weeks as urgent demand for personal protection equipment (PPE) eases and airlines begin to restart passenger operations.
