Antonov moves urgent cargo for deep-sea repair works to Turkey
Antonov Airlines delivered a container loaded with winches and equipment weighing almost 30 tonnes from Ostend (Belgium) to Istanbul (Turkey) for deep-water (up to 400 meters) repair of the water piping between Turkey and Cyprus.
Loading and unloading of the container weighing approximately 28.8 tonnes required a special equipment which was designed and manufactured at Antonov Company. In less than a day after the order confirmation, the AN-22 aircraft was loaded.
The Ostende-Istanbul mission was performed by Skyair Shop Aviation Services Serkan Dikmen. Commenting on the mission, the company’s director general Tekin Ertemel said, "We are very pleased with the cooperation with Antonov Airlines, which is a high-skilled airline that works as a team."
