HAECO Xiamen Provides Cargo Carriage Solutions to Cathay Pacific Airways

: Jul 20, 2020 - : 7:11 am

HAECO Xiamen has delivered a successful design engineering and certification solutions to Cathay Pacific Airways (Cathay Pacific) which will allow the airline to utilise sections of its Boeing 777 passenger cabins to carry cargo.

These solutions will allow Cathay Pacific to utilise a greater number of its aircraft for cargo-bearing flights, enabling the airline to carry more essential goods internationally during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The modification is covered by a Supplemental Type Certificate (“STC”) and has been directly approved by the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department (“HKCAD”). The modification has been designed to be in line with Boeing’s Multi Operator Message (MOM-MOM-20-0239-16B) guidelines.

 The modification kit was directly sourced and fabricated on site by HAECO Xiamen and the scope of work involved removing economy and premium economy seats to install cargo bags, which are secured with cargo nets and straps, and other associated safety equipment.

HAECO Xiamen has also obtained HKCAD’s minor change approval for Cathay Pacific, which allows cargo to be placed on the seats of the airline’s Airbus A330 aircraft.

This second modification kit, again fabricated by HAECO Xiamen, includes cargo bags secured onto the existing seat structures. It has been reclassified by HKCAD as a minor change on a time-limited basis.
