The Antonov-124-100 is the world’s largest civil cargo aircraft, and an acknowledged leader of the air cargo market for the transportation of oversized and super-heavy shipments. The combination of exceptional characteristics such as its cargo compartment size, flight range and uplift capability without using special loading equipment allows the An-124 to carry super-heavy and oversized cargo up to 120 tonnes across the greatest range.
The aircraft’s pressurized cargo cabin, with its total volume of 1050 m³, guarantees unprecedented opportunities for the transportation of different types of cargo, including non-standard and oversized pieces or shipments demanding special transportation conditions.
Multi-leg landing gears equipped with 24 wheels allow to change the angle of the fuselage to simplify loading operations.
The Antonov-124-100 has two loading entrances, at the nose and tail of the aircraft, both equipped with expanding loading ramps. For loading of non-standard cargo the cabin is equipped with two electric winches of 3 tonnes traction each and 4 electric hoists of common carrying capacity up to 30 tonnes.
Today, Volga-Dnepr operates a fleet of 12 Antonov-124-100 aircraft.
