Air Canada Reconfiguring Airplanes for More Space to Transport Supplies
Air Canada is one of the aviation companies involved in bringing medical supplies and other goods to the country to help combat the COVID-19 crisis. The airline announced that they are reconfiguring the cabins of three of their Boeing 777 aircrafts to make more room for cargo. The process involves removing around 400 seats from each aircraft.
The conversion of one aircraft has already been completed. Senior Vice President of Cargo at Air Canada Tim Strauss says the other two aircrafts are set to be ready in the next couple of days.
We're transforming three of our #B777s to transport goods in the cabin, thereby doubling their cargo capacity to help fly critical medical and vital supplies to and across Canada. More: https://t.co/fnVfrcgzxz pic.twitter.com/p20M6nvwUI
