Hi Fly has revealed the World’s first cargo Airbus A380 superjumbo. Hi Fly added cargo capacity on the A380, by temporarily removing all the Economy seats, to create additional storage space for light consignments.

Lufthansa Technik reconfigured the aircraft for cargo operation to meet the high demand of cargo during COVID-19 pandemic.

Germany’s Lufthansa Technik, Canada’s Avianor, Hong Kong’s HAECO and Belgium’s Akka Technologies are among the popular companies carrying similar conversions.

Our new services for temporary operational changes from passenger to cargo aircraft have met with great interest in the market: Among enquiries from more than 40 airlines the support of a first #A380 is a special highlight for us #keepyouflying
