ANTONOV AIRLINES flies mining equipment from France to Argentina


Heavy-lift freighter operator Antonov Airlines has carried 40 tonnes of mining equipment from France to Argentina via Brazil. Cargo included a large semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill head, which was split into four parts sections and transporte­d on an AN-124-100 chartered by Dynami Aviation.

Antonov Airlines said the aircraft type was selected for the operation because it can accommodat­e over 700 cubic metres of “unusually shaped cargo”. Additional­ly, it responded quickly to ensure the flight met a “strict deadline”, allowing operations at the mine to continue as normal.
