Antonov Airlines AN-225 flies medical supplies to Namibia

Antonov Airlines has safely transported medical supplies at short notice from Germany to Namibia on the world’s largest aircraft, the AN-225 “Mriya”. 

The mission was executed under the Strategic Airlift International Solution (SALIS) programme.

The AN-225, which has recently returned to commercial operation took off from its home base at Kyiv-Antonov, Ukraine and flew to Liepzig-Halle airport, Germany to load the cargo destined for Windhoek, Namibia with one refuelling and rest stop in Accra, Ghana.

The medical and humanitarian cargo, provided by German Military Medical Command, was a mixture of masks, anti-viral gowns, medicines, and other personal protective equipment (PPE), transported on behalf of Germany’s Federal Ministry of Defence at the request of the Namibian Government.
