HAECO Cabin Solutions’ in-seat package stowage systems have been deployed by RoyalJet to enable cargo to be carried on its fleet of BBJ 737-700 aircraft. RoyalJet is based in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
“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 Rob DiCastri, CEO of RoyalJet. “Of the solutions we considered, HAECO Cabin Solutions’ all-in-one cargo solution and cargo bags provided the most payload and cargo volume, and were easily configurable to adapt to the available space, maximising cargo capacity while minimising cabin modification.”
HAECO Cabin Solutions provided the STC for the equipment and installation, and the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority granted approval to operate the aircraft with both cargo and passengers, enhancing RoyalJet’s flexibility.
“These are challenging times for airlines,” said Doug Rasmussen, president and group director of HAECO Cabin Solutions. “We are delighted to offer these quick and cost-effective solutions that allow RoyalJet to continue passenger operations as well as the capability to greatly increase and maximise the cargo volume and payload capacity of their aircraft.”
