Antonov's revenue soars

Antonov Airlines has reported an 81 percent revenue increase in 2017 compared to the previous year, with aerospace shipments being one of the key sectors for the Ukrainian airline. 



According to Antonov, January to May figures in 2018 were up 42 percent.

The carrier says that its growth is the result of a strategic partnership with Dreamlifts and the establishment of its UK headquarters at London Stansted Airport. 

Antonov appointed Dreamlifts as its general sales agent, replacing Ruslan International, in December 2016, as HLPFI reported here, following the termination of its joint venture with Volga-Dnepr

Antonov, meanwhile, is working with Western suppliers for its fleet modernisation programme, which has already increased the payload of two of its AN-124 aircraft from 120 tonnes to 150 tonnes.
