Kuehne + Nagel hires Antonov An-124 for relief flights to Ukraine

They are somewhat similar to the flying symbol of Ukraine: the huge Antonov cargo planes. The largest of them all, the six-engine Antonov An-225, was destroyed in combat operations at Hostomil airfield in the northwest of Kyiv at the end of February, in the first week of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

But the (slightly) smaller sisters of the An-124 still fly — and essentially carry relief supplies for Ukraine from around the world to Poland. The trips are paid for by Swiss logistics group Kuehne + Nagel, among others.
