Due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis and its impact on the air cargo industry Aeroflot and Civil Aviation authorities of Russia permitted to carry cargo in the passenger cabins. The decision allowed to carry more cargo in passenger planes.

This month we are starting cargo program on A330 with equipped cabins. Moreover all widebody planes, available from the passenger flights, will be used in cargo program.

As of last year Aeroflot started carrying vaccines all over the world and reached over 13 million doses.

We should expect that the demand for critical medical supplies due to global sourcing will continue for the foreseeable future.

Air cargo will play a significant role in supporting the recovery of the global supply chain and the economy.
