Business Challenge

Business Challenge

The aviation industry was the lifeline of economic activities before it hit a slump due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Demand fell sharply and while the industry is slowly resuming, it might take a few years to recover completely. At the same time, demand for cargo flights has doubled and will continue to grow owing to increased e-commerce sales and the need for freighters to transport COVID 19 vaccines when ready. However, the limited availability of freighters, and high costs and time involved in passenger to cargo conversion resulted in unmet demand. This presents the aviation industry with an opportunity to minimize losses and recover revenues partially - by shifting from passenger to auxiliary cargo.

Our Proposition

Our Proposition

HCLTech’s Passenger to Auxiliary Cargo Conversion Solution helps convert passenger aircrafts into a temporary cargo configuration and allows airlines to transport cargo in their passenger cabins after seats are removed. It provides a comprehensive coverage of auxiliary conversion, offers variety of cargo loading configurations and also includes interactive audio video modules for each stage. As the solution does not mandate any modification to aircraft structures/interiors, conversion back from cargo to passenger will be quick, easy and can be done at airline hangars. It also includes complete engineering activities, and documentation for Supplemental Type Certificate (STC).
