Antonov Airlines partners with Crane Worldwide to transport oil well safety equipment to Argentina


Crane Worldwide charters an An-124-100 to transport the 70 tonne shipment

London, UK, Thursday 10th October 2019, – Antonov Airlines has flown a mobile crane and fire extinguishing equipment from George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) to Presidente Perón International Airport (NQN) in Argentina for Crane Worldwide.

An An-124-100 flew the crane and associated equipment which included booms, tracks, control stations and water pumps, that weighed a combined total of 70 tonnes.

“Antonov Airlines yet again proves to be an invaluable partner when we are tasked to handle mission critical cargo for our clients,” said Dillon Lato, Inside Sales Supervisor – Houston, Crane Worldwide.

“We had an AN124 agreement signed, aircraft on the ground, loaded, and ready for wheels up to the destination in 48 hours.

“Our clients expect and deserve the highest level of performance, and with partners like Antonov Airlines we are able to deliver time and time again.”

Antonov Airlines and Crane Worldwide have collaborated on previous projects, including flying 223 pallets of chemical drums on An-225 ‘Mriya’ from Singapore and Malaysia to Saudi Arabia.

“Communication between Antonov and Crane Worldwide has always been very effective, which helped us to avoid the pitfalls that can lie in the details of setting up this kind of project,” said Jessie Baiza, Regional Sales Manager North America, Antonov Airlines.

“The Antonov crew are experienced in handling shipments exactly like this one and we used the aircraft’s on-board crane to facilitate loading and unloading at NQN, where Crane Worldwide staff were ready to collect the equipment.

“We are looking forward to working together on future projects with our partners at Crane Worldwide.”

Antonov Airlines also provides rapid, airborne support for offshore oil well spills, and can transport fully assembled well capping stacks to significantly reduce emergency response times.
