An airliner is a transport aircraft designed for use in commercial aviation. Its primary role is the comfortable carriage of passengers, although virtually all airliners have some cargo capacity and many can be converted for additional cargo carriage. Some have all-cargo variants, which are possibly indistinguishable from their general appearance.
