A Combi is filled up from approximately the back of the wings with cargo.. Making it part pax, part cargo. Hope that helps!


Upcoming flights: 09-03 AMS - GOA KL1563 # 11-03 GOA - AMS KL1564

Is a model of aircraft who is made by request of the company to take pax and cargo, some route have to much cargo and less pax. The half of airplane, front part normally is for pax use and the back side is for cargo, the cargo walk can be move, until I know, depend of the volumes of the pallet they can carrier. Another advantage is easy to convert in a full cargo plane.

But in the AI world there is no separate model for the combi.
