This Seat Bag modification for the Airbus A320 family planes has been approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
According to a statement, the cargo seat bag is a spacious 76x76x147 cm (30x30x58 inches) kit for a triple seat, with up to 75 kg (165 lb) of cargo to be stored on the seat and additional 9 kg – under the seat, totaling 252 kg (555 lb) per a triple seat block.
The installation of the kit could be done in several minutes. These bags allow effectively load passenger cabins with “postal correspondence, household goods, electronics and other commercial cargo to medical equipment and other kinds of humanitarian supplies”.
The modification option came in a very right time. Now, a lot of passenger aircraft are recruited for cargo operations. For example, Avion Express has recently joined the team of carriers operating exclusively cargo flights to secure the world with much needed supplies.
