In the face of more and more passenger flight cancellations, Lufthansa has turned its passenger planes into cargo carriers.
Around 30 tons of freight carried in a Lufthansa passenger aircraft landed in Frankfurt earlier this week.
In addition to the cargo compartments of the Airbus A330, the cabin, including the stowage compartments above the seats, were also loaded.
The plane was carrying urgent goods, mainly from the medical sector, including masks and other protective equipment. The required permits for the flight were issued in cooperation with the foreign ministries and embassies of the People's Republic of China and the Federal Republic of Germany.
The airline is looking into the possibility of operating further flights exclusively for cargo transport on passenger aircraft.
