THE Federal Aviation Administration (F) will allow airlines to remove seats and use seat tracks to secure cargo in passenger aircraft if there are no passengers on board, according to an exemption issued by the agency.

The agency also extended a previous exemption that allowed airlines to carry cargo on seats through July 10, 2021, and provided more details on crew training, report Washington, DC's Supply Chain Dive.



Airlines for America applied for the exemption to remove seats on May 6, arguing it was in the public interest that the planes be available to move essential cargo during the coronavirus pandemic.



'I find that a partial grant of exemption is in the public interest,' said James Wilborn, the acting manager of the transport standards branch policy and innovation division within F's Aircraft Certification Service.
