Antonov powers ahead in Pakistan

Antonov Airlines has transported a power plant rotor from Italy to Pakistan on board one of its seven AN-124-100 aircraft.

The shipment, which included the rotor and associated equipment, weighed a total of 108 tonnes and was transported from Genoa to Karachi.

On behalf of Fracht Italia, Antonov Airlines collaborated with Italy-based charter broker Compagnia Merci Aeree to transport the components.

Martin Griffiths, commercial manager at Antonov Airlines, said: "Energy was among our stronger sectors in 2017, accounting for 11 percent of our total output."

Projects included four flights from Slovenia to Mexico, and 41 flights from the USA to Puerto Rico, with over 80 percent of cargo carried being energy-related.
