New EFW cabin cargo box solution boosts freight capacity of passenger aircraft

With its size of 1 x 1 x 1,55 m (40 x 40 x 60 in) the cabin cargo box offers loading of up to 200 kg (440 lbs) at a tare weight of 28 kg ©EFW

EFW has launched a lightweight, robust cabin cargo box for flexible storage concepts. The solution will allow airlines to boost the cargo capacity in the main cabin to its maximum. If for example, a full cargo composition is applied to an A330-200, a volume of up to 145 m³ and a payload of nearly 19 tons can be shipped in just one flight in addition to the belly capacity.

The cabin cargo box solution is an advanced opportunity to implement individual cargo solutions optimized to airlines’ needs with just minor modifications. With this solution, specific load authorizations can be achieved with the capability of carrying larger and heavy items in the cabin.

The solution can be issued with Supplemental Type Certification (STC) when merited, which EFW is authorized to do so under its EASA-certified Design Organization Authorization (DOA).
