…Something like that.
Similar to KLM’s 747-400 Combi, which has a mix of passenger seats and cargo storage on the main deck of the aircraft, China Eastern has created its own “Combi” aircraft.
China Eastern is using some of its A330-200 aircraft to transport medical supplies between China and Europe.
After all necessary seats were stripped out of the plane, only 42 Economy Class seats and all Business Class seats were left in case there are passengers traveling.
It’s unconfirmed which China Eastern A330-200s have this “Combi” configuration at the moment, but apparently the first one already flew to Prague, Czech Republic to transport medical supplies to the city.
Really nice job by China Eastern and their team for quickly creating this special aircraft. During this time especially, cargo flights are crucial for the world.
