The Antonov AN-225 Mriya is the world’s largest aircraft, it landed safely in Dammam airport at the weekend transporting 223 pallets of chemical drums for Crane Worldwide Logistics®.
Given the lack of ocean vessels available, the Antonov AN-225 was the perfect choice to transport the high volume client request in a timely manner. With a keen sense of urgency, the Crane Worldwide team co-ordinated cargo from multiple vendors in both Singapore and Malaysia in order to maximize the load potential of the aircraft.

In this case, the Antonov AN-225 presented the perfect solution and it was a great moment to see this magnificent aircraft land once again in Kuala Lumpur’.
