Giant aircraft for Honda Logistics move

Volga-Dnepr Airlines has carried over 200 tonnes of industrial equipment from Japan to Thailand to help with the reconstruction of Honda’s assembly facilities after they were severely damaged in floods at the end of 2011.
The series of three AN-124-100 cargo flights, each carrying a payload of between 60-70 tonnes, operated from Nagoya and Osaka airports in Japan to the Thai capital, Bangkok. The operation was on behalf of Honda Logistics.
“It took 13 hours to place the equipment inside the aircraft on each of the first two flights and six hours for the third flight,” said Tak Konita, Volga-Dnepr’s representative in Japan.
