A second life for passenger aircraft
Kuehne+Nagel has developed an integrated end-to-end logistics solution to support conversion of passenger aircraft into freighter aircraft (so-called P2F). In light of the dynamic cargo market requirements and a significant amount of unused passenger equipment due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Kuehne+Nagel shifted the focus of its proven “KN InteriorChain” service towards P2F conversions. This requires a number of complex structural modifications to the aircraft and precise and reliable materials management. Thanks to in-depth industry expertise and a close collaboration with suppliers and customers, the new P2F aircraft conversion programme is an efficient end-to-end solution to manage the conversions of retired passenger aircraft into long-lasting freighters.
