HAECO Aircraft Co. Combines Passengers and Freight

[ May 1, 2020   //   ]

HAECO Cabin Solutions, a business unit of HAECO Americas headquartered in Greensboro-High Point, NC, has launched a new initiative that will convert main passenger aircraft cabins into a hybrid passenger-freight space. With airlines shifting to meet the demand for social distancing as a result of COVID-19, HAECO’s Interior Stowage Devices will use packages to distance passengers – optimizing passenger and cargo yield, while simultaneously maintaining proper weight and balance requirements. Four unique solutions (based on the amount of weight that can be carried) will build upon existing seating and interior technologies. HAECO’s solutions can be delivered in four to six weeks and follow techniques used for economy seating, which can be accomplished quickly and without the need for special tools.

Major airlines are already expressing interest in the new passenger-freight hybrid solutions and HAECO expects announcements to be made soon.Leading airlines have been using HAECO’s seats and interior products for more than 20 years.
