Since 2006, just under ten percent of tonne-kilometres (tkm) flown by Antonov Airlines related to the transportation of helicopters. Today, the AN-124-100 is the fastest and most convenient method of delivery for new helicopter models.
- Antonov Airlines carried its first consignment of helicopters in October 1992, when it delivered four Mil Mi-8s to a United Nations contingent in Angola.
- Helicopter loading on the Antonov Airlines fleet is fast and convenient. Using internal winches, helicopters can be loaded via each aircraft’s integral ramp.
- Now a vital part of the helicopter logistics chain, Antonov Airlines provides air charter services to many of the world’s leading helicopter manufacturers.
