Hospital takes to the skies

August 7 - Air Partner and Ruslan International have worked together to move an entire portable hospital from Turkey to Tangier, Morocco on board an AN-124 freighter.

The modular clinic comprised of ten individual units, which included: a reception hall; radiology room; operating theatre; dentistry unit; intensive care unit; pharmacy and medical store; and twin generators.

All of the units were based around ISO 20ft containers for ease of transport and assembly on site.

The portable health centre, which weighed a total of 44 tonnes, was flown on a single AN-124 flight from its manufacturer in Turkey to Tangier's IBN Batouta Airport, on behalf of a Middle Eastern ruling family.

"We chose the AN-124 because it could carry all 10 units on a single flight, and because its on-board crane system meant loading and unloading could be performed directly to and from road vehicles, without the need for any handling equipment," said Air Partner's regional freight manager for Turkey, Emir Ozdabak.
