This container room is located at the cargo airport of Frankfurt/Main. A private undertaker set up the container to preserve corpses in accordance with flight safety regulations. Since the gases emitted by a decaying body can impact flight functions, before departure blood is sucked out of the dead body and is replaced by various chemicals. The corresponding processes of decay are thus slowed down. Some 30,000 corpses are transported to and from Germany on an annual basis, half of these via air freight. It is common practice to include coffins on passenger flights. In order to avoid hysteric reactions at airport, bodies must be packaged in a way that makes them unrecognizable as such.
