Six charter flights fly heavy-lift cargo from Shanghai to Dubai Airport
Volga-Dnepr Airlines has operated six AN-124-100 charters to transport 48 street sterilisation vehicles from China to the United Arab Emirates.
The special flights delivered the trucks from Shanghai to Dubai for final destination Abu Dhabi, where the vehicles will be used for a “National Disinfection Programme” in preventative action against COVID-19.
All flights were in cooperation with Volga-Dnepr Airline’s long-term partner and colleague in the heavy-lift market – Maximus Air.
Each flight was loaded with 8 trucks, utilising 3 aircraft within a 4-day period– made possible by the world’s largest fleet of AN-124-100s.
The Volga-Dnepr charter team have been delivering crucial oversized/ heavy-lift equipment to support global health infrastructures.
Humanitarian Director for Volga-Dnepr Group, Stuart Smith said: “The six AN-124-100s operated on behalf of Maximus, exemplify the range of services that Volga-Dnepr can provide - transporting air freight of all sizes to all destinations.”
