São Paulo – Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) has authorized airlines to transport just cargo in the passenger cabins of their planes. The measure will be in force while the country remains in state of emergency due to COVID-19, the Federal Gazette reported last Wednesday (15).

To do so, the companies must meet some requirements, such as following safety guidelines and having no passengers in the cabins. ANAC stressed in the press release that companies must require permission to do this operation and will be able to maximize their capacity to deliver essential products and raw materials during the pandemic, including foodstuffs, medical supplies, and individual protection equipment.
