Saga works together on the chartering of an Antonov 124 freighter aircraft

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

 

Saga Bettignies and SAGA Lille-Lesquin worked together on the chartering of an Antonov 124 freighter aircraft to move a 55-tonne engine from Lille airport to Shenzhen in China. This second largest aircraft of its kind, with a 125 tonne capacity, lifted off from the Lille-Lesquin airport for the second time.

 

Technical data

Model : Antonov An-124 Ruslan

Wingspan : 73.30m

Length : 69.10m

Height : 22.00

 

Our customer's extreme time constraints lead SAGA to propose a solution via the Antonov 124. Indeed, the transport by air of this machine took only one day whereas a move by sea would have taken 45 days.

This kind of charter flight is certainly exceptional! SAGA was able to react quickly and offer this viable solution to its customer. This remarkable event proves once again that SAGA is capable of offering any and all solutions to its clients!

You will find below several photos of this experience including the expert loading of the aircraft by our professional teams :
