How an Emirates B777-300ER becomes a mini-freighter


Emirates has modified its 10 Boeing 777-300ER passenger aircraft to create additional cargo capacity, achieved by removing seats from the economy class cabin. The modification allows for up to 17 tonnes or 132 cubic metres of additional cargo capacity per flight, on top of the 40-50 tonne cargo capacity in the belly hold.

The modified Boeing 777 aircraft are being deployed on routes to key production and consumer markets where Emirates SkyCargo sees maximum demand for the movement of urgently required goods such as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, food, machinery and other critical supplies.
