The cargo was loaded and unloaded onto the AN-124s using external cranes and unique loading equipment that was developed by Antonov Airlines.

Christopher Klein, the senior manager global charters at DHL Global Forwarding which chartered the operation, said:  “The flights were a great charter project that we carried out together with Antonov Airlines professionally and to the fullest customer satisfaction.

“In the past few months there have been a number of challenges to master, most recently a snowstorm on the US east coast, which meant we had to change the destination airport at short notice.”

Antonov Airlines head of customer service department Dmytro Prosvirin added: “It is a global effort in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic and we are honoured that Antonov Airlines played a key role in this.”
