Carriage of Persons on All Cargo Aircraft

Dec 16, 2019


It has come to the Federation’s attention that Cargo Aircraft Only (CAO) provisions are being used to prevent individuals from traveling on cargo aircraft when such aircraft carry Dangerous Goods (DG) not allowed on passenger aircraft. The CAO provisions allow types and quantities of DG on all-cargo aircraft because it was believed pilots of those aircraft had specific means of responding to DG incidents that are not normally available to passenger aircraft pilots.
