ANTONOV AN-225 Mriya to Enter Service to Meet High Demand

MIAMI – Ukrainian ANTONOV Airlines (ADB) says it is launching its AN-225 Mriya into commercial operation to support customers in the heavy-lift market, where capacity is in high demand.

The Mriya, which has onboard loading equipment, and a pressurized cabin, will compliment ANTONOV’s fleet of seven AN-124s, two with a capacity of up to 150 tonnes.

Earlier in the year, the AN-225 was actively involved in delivery of humanitarian and medical cargoes and safely transported more than 1,300 tonnes of such cargoes to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
