ANTONOV AIRLINES SAFELY TRANSPORTS DISMANTLED JET FROM BRAZIL TO THE USA AT SHORT NOTICE


The parts of the aircraft were flown in six separate crates on an Antonov Airlines’ AN-124-100 aircraft with one week’s notice

Kyiv, Ukraine, Tuesday 25th May 2021: Antonov Airlines has transported parts for an aircraft in cooperation with DB Schenker Brazil from Viracopos, Brazil to Miami, USA, with one week’s notice for planning and executing the project.

The cargo was dismantled into consignments with dimensions that met the

AN-124-100 aircraft specifications filling six wooden crates.

They included 15 m long wing sections and two sections of fuselage measuring 12 m long.

To handle the dimensions of the cargo, special loading equipment designed and manufactured by Antonov Airlines was used in conjunction with two external cranes as well as forklifts to ensure smooth and safe loading and unloading of the cargo.

“Thanks to the expertise of our in-house engineers, strong communication channels with the customer, and the flexibility of both parties on the solutions for cargo transportation, Antonov Airlines was able to plan and deliver this cargo within the tight deadline to the highest safety standards,” said Ivan Bozhko, Commercial Executive, Antonov Airlines.

Alvaro Zanella, Airfreight Business Development and Operations Manager, DB Schenker, said; “It was a really challenging operation due to cargo size and delicacy itself, as well as the short amount of time we had from receiving the demand to accomplishing its required necessity.

“But thanks to the exceptional DB Schenker Airfreight team along with the expertise of Antonov Airlines’ professionals we were able to deliver such a reliable and successful service to the final customer.”

Antonov Airlines has been involved with transporting other modes of transport over the last thirty years, including racing yachts for the America’s Cup, helicopters, and even maglev trains for metro systems.
