We’ve been in the aircraft charter business for nearly 50 years and our global officeshave seen it all. However, there is one aircraft that still sparks genuine excitement whenever it flies – The Antonov AN-225.
Developed as part of by the Antonov Design Bureau in the 1980s, the AN-225 comes equipped with six turbofan engines, a wingspan of 88m and a weight of 285,000kg – earning it the title of the world’s heaviest aircraft.
The Antonov fills a particularly niche gap in the charter market, often allowing single loads that would have been split and transported on multiple aircraft. It’s big, heavy and some may say a little ugly, but it has a place in our heart.
We have created an infographic below to highlight some of the Antonov AN-225’s impressive stats and facts. If you like the post, feel free to share this page!
