Abu Dhabi-based airline Royal Jet is employing HAECO Cabin Solutions’ novel in-seat package stowage systems, allowing cargo to be carried in the passenger cabin of its 737-700 aircraft.

“In our drive to enhance the capabilities of our fleet during these challenging times we have been searching for ways to allow our customers to transport more precious cargo on their trips,” said Royal Jet chief executive officer Rob DiCastri.

“Of the solutions we considered, HAECO Cabin Solutions’ all-in-one cargo solution and cargo bags provided the most payload and cargo volume, and was easily configurable to adapt to the available space, maximising cargo capacity while minimising cabin modification.”

HAECO Cabin Solutions provided the supplemental type certificate (STC) for the equipment and installation. The United Arab Emirates’ General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) granted operational approval to operate the aircraft with both cargo and passengers, enhancing Royal Jet’s operational flexibility.

HAECO Cabin Solutions’ president and group director Doug Rasmussen commented: “These are challenging times for airlines. We are delighted to offer these quick and cost-effective solutions that allow Royal Jet to continue passenger operations as well as the capability to greatly increase and maximise the cargo volume and payload capacity of their aircraft.”
