Antonov Airlines in cooperation with Chapman Freeborn Germany has completed three AN-124 flights to transport a mobile gas power plant generator and associated equipment from Ljubljana, Slovenia, to Kano, Nigeria.
The cargoes weighed around 200 tonnes in total. “The entire Antonov team, from commercial to operational, route planning, and load planning, worked closely with our client and agents to ensure the safe delivery of this important cargo, which will support energy needs in Nigeria,” said Eugene Kiva, commercial executive at Antonov Airlines.
Eugene Gavrylov, acting director general of Ukraine’s Antonov Company, added: “We continue to operate despite the challenges we have faced after the Russian invasion and the damage they caused to our Gostomel home base and some of our aircraft. The services responsible for planning the transportation and maintenance of aircraft have been temporarily relocated to Leipzig, Germany. This allows us to ensure the further safe operation of Antonov fleet aircraft.”
HLPFI previously reported on the transfer of operations to Leipzig here.
