UKRANIAN carrier Antonov Airlines recently teamed up with KN Airlift to transport two Max Bogl TSB trains from Munich to Chengdu, reports London's Air Cargo News.
The trains, which each weighed 36 tonnes and measured 12.6 m x 2.8 m x 3.7 m, were flown in AN-124-100 aircraft.
Specialised equipment designed by Antonov Airlines was used to load and unload the trains onto the aircraft and they were secured with special lashings to prevent them from getting damaged during the flight.
Transported for Chengdu Xinzhu Road & Bridge Machinery, Antonov Airlines commercial director Andriy Blagovisniy, said: 'This project was both challenging and interesting. It required careful preparation and performance of the flight strictly in accordance with the schedule. We thank our customer KN Airlift for their continued trust and effective cooperation.'
Said KN Airlift operations chief Timo Kaden: 'This exciting project was based on teamwork from all involved parties. We highly appreciate the professional performance from our valued partner Antonov Airlines.'
