September 2013

On 5 September, 2013, one of the world’s largest cargo aircraft An-124 Ruslan landed in Siauliai airport. The gigantic aircraft brought an oversized cargo - a 110-ton rotor of thermal power plant in Belarus. A 350-ton capacity crane was rented from Latvia, as well as special equipment from Finland was used for handling of this cargo.

 Siauliai airport was particularly chosen for the transportation of this oversized cargo because it is not overcrowded with large aircraft flows; it has appropriate and convenient road connections; also, fast customs procedures are carried out.

Accepting this type of aircraft is a challenge to the Municipal Company Siauliu oro uostas, since  experience and proper equipment is necessary for handling of such aircraft” - said Arturas Jurkevicius, Head of Airside Operations at Siauliai airport.

It is not the first time that An-124 Ruslan lands in Siauliai airport. Last time this type of aircraft landed in the airport in 2011 for refueling. In 2009, Volga-Dnepr Airlines, which use these aircraft for the transportation of non-standard cargo, sent An-124 Ruslan to Siauliai to pick up three helicopters for their further operation in South Asia.
