Aeromexico: three aircraft used at the same time for cargo transportation
One from a request by the local Government, the other two by private clients
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, Aeromexico is using part of its grounded fleet for cargo-only flying through its airfreight division, Aeromexico Cargo.
This is an unexpected turn in Mexico's aviation industry, as Aeromexico is now flying three of its nineteen B-787 Dreamliner aircraft for cargo-only purposes between China and Mexico.
The three aircraft left for Shanghai, China today, with a layover at Narita airport in Japan. The Government of Mexico, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, organized one of the three operations, using the aircraft registered as N783AM.
While there is a significant reduction in passenger demand worldwide, it has seen that air cargo transportation has taken on an important role, not only for the transport of medical equipment but also for other necessary goods to keep supporting the economy and businesses.
It is the first time that three Aeromexico long-range passenger aircraft have flown simultaneously and to the same destination for the exclusive transport of cargo.
