Hi,

No this is temporary. They are using also pax planes as they don't have cargo planes.
They do this now bcs the demand is very high and the prices they are paid for is also very high.

As from the moment that everything will be normal again and the prices will be lower, we will see them all gone again and only leaving the full cargo planes and carriers who were flying before Covid-19

The number of cargo flights, via pax planes, slowly start to decrease already this month. Also the number of full freighters.

With soon the opening of the European borders and next month the external borders, it is not interesting anymore to fly those extra flights. In a couple of days it can be again as belly freight

Furthermore, everyone has now dozens of facemasks at home. No need to import many more.

DHL needs a lot of capacity now, or in the last few months. Emirates was also flying a lot for them.
So, those are third party airlines flying for them. They also fly very often to AMS now.

There might be some changes at BRUcargo, with the VS service changed into LHR-BRU-LHR.
