Antonov Airlines transports 70 tonnes of oxygen equipment to India

Antonov Airlines has safely transported 70 tonnes of oxygen concentrators from Tel Aviv, Israel to Delhi, India for its Indian general sales agent Flywell Aviation Pvt. Ltd., and supply chain Service(s) provider, Delhivery.

The journey from Tel Aviv included a technical stop in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) for refuelling.

The 2,500 concentrators were loaded on board one of Antonov Airline’s seven AN-124-100 aircraft with a payload of up to 150 tonnes.

“Antonov Airlines is well prepared when it comes to transporting urgent medical equipment within a short time frame thanks to our many years of working on humanitarian aid programmes and disaster relief projects,” said Andriy Blagovisniy, Commercial Director, Antonov Airlines.

“Our AN-124-100 aircraft provided rapid loading and unloading of this urgent cargo with its ramp access and large cargo capacity.”

Oxygen concentrators work by collecting and filtering the surrounding air to produce up to 95% pure oxygen, which can then be administered to patients by nasal cannulas or oxygen masks.
