Leipzig/Halle steps on the gas

June 27 - A gas cooler weighing 141 tonnes was loaded on board an aircraft at Leipzig/Halle Airport having made its way to the airport from Berlin by inland waterway and low loader.

Two cranes were also used to move the unit on board an Antonov AN 225 using a specially constructed ramp.

The heaviest item of freight ever handled at Leipzig/Halle Airport, was loaded by employees of PortGround GmbH, the ground handling and freight services provider that is part of the Mitteldeutsche Flughafen AG Group and has had many years of experience in handling heavy items.

"Leipzig/Halle Airport offers ideal conditions for freight charter flights around the globe with its excellent transport connections and the opportunities provided by its 24-hour operating permit.

Our subsidiary PortGround has also had a wealth of experience, which goes back many years, when it comes to handling outsize cargo; our customers value this highly," Markus Kopp, CEO of Mitteldeutsche Flughafen AG, points out.

He adds, "PortGround has loaded a variety of vehicles, industrial plant and helicopters and even complete underground trains on board different types of aircraft in the past.

"We're particularly delighted that the Antonov 225 has now become a "regular guest" at Leipzig/Halle."
