Trip & Co and SII Netherlands have announced a joint partnership to support airlines with the challenge of cargo transportation in aircraft cabins during the global coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

    Due to the demand for PAX to Cargo solutions, which Trip & Co launched a few weeks ago, the company has partnered up with SII Netherlands in order to deliver these products with STC certification process even faster all over the world.

    The safety products company has designed passenger seat bags to be able to ship cargo in passenger flights. These bags are watertight, chemical and UV resistant and also able to transfer products in all kinds of temperatures.

    According to Tijmen Koster, CEO at Trip & Co, this collaboration will be a logical development in the production of new cargo solutions.

    SII Design Organisation is experienced in cabin reconfigurations, Mod-kit deliveries and STC applications, while Trip & Co has experience in air cargo equipment and production around the world.

    Through their collaborations, customers will have the ability to choose from a broader spectrum of PAX to Cargo products, which are instantly ready for use and meet all the requirements set by their local authorities.

    All solutions will be delivered with an EASA Form-1 and approval for installation including manual supplements and loading instructions.

    Managing director at SII Netherlands, Frank Kup, said: “Airliners are currently facing one of its biggest challenges ever, our team is highly motivated to support Trip & Co with multiple solutions.

    “The choices we make in our proposed solutions are driven by safety and short lead times.”

    One solution the two companies have said to be working on currently is a new modification kit that can be installed on the seat track after removal of the seats.
