There’s no room for passengers in here! Air Canada is still transporting emergency medical supplies across the country and its cargo-only planes look almost unrecognizable.
Earlier this year, the airline revealed that hundreds of seats had been removed from its aircrafts so they could be stuffed with medical supplies amid the pandemic.
In a tweet on October 28, the company revealed it was still operating a number of cargo-only flights and shared an updated picture of one of the plane’s interiors.

“On Oct. 24th, we proudly operated our 3,000th cargo-only flight,” confirmed the airline on Wednesday.
