LOT Polish Airlines and its India GSSA, Group Concorde, have flown 53
LOT Polish Airlines and its India GSSA, Group Concorde, have flown 53.5 tonnes of cargo on a single cargo-only Dreamliner flight from Delhi to Warsaw.
Cargo on the flight was carried in the bellyhold, on the seats and in the overhead lockers - and exceeded Group Concorde's previous cargo weight record carried on the same aircraft type: 47,167 kg, earlier in the month.
Pharmaceutical products were transported on the flight, as well as auto parts, which added to the overall cargo weight.
Prompted by the Covid-19 outbreak, LOT has been operating cargo-only PAX flights from Delhi since May, reports London's Air Cargo News.
'We acknowledge the great efforts of [the] LOT Cargo team along with airport authorities and ground handling agents who have achieved this milestone by excellent load planning,' Group Concorde said. 'The team has set an example of excellent team spirit, complete dedication and commitment, especially during this challenging pandemic.'
It added: 'We want to thank LOT Polish Airlines management for having faith in Group Concorde and all the stakeholders for their continuous support to make this cargo operation successful. We assure you that Group Concorde team will remain committed to serve you with excellency and deliver our best services all the times.'
