Bolloré Logistics partners with Antonov Airlines to transport Airbus Defense & Space Satellite to the USA

Bolloré Logistics partnered with Antonov Airlines to deliver Airbus Defence and Space’s newest satellite, ANASIS-II to the USA. It was carried from Airbus Defence and Space’s facility in Toulouse (France) by one of the airline’s seven Antonov-124-100. The aircraft landed at Florida’s Cape Canaveral Kennedy Space center from where the SpaceX teams took the lead for the next stage. The satellite container used to deliver ANASIS-II measured 11 meters in length and weighed 18 tonnes. The operation gave Bolloré Logistics and Antonov Airlines the opportunity to trial a new lightweight, low profile loading equipment specially designed and manufactured by Antonov Airlines to transport largest satellite container in near future.
