Air Partner transports airport equipment to Libya

UK-based charter specialist Air Partner completed an Antonov An-26 freighter flight for airport equipment from the Czech Republic to Libya .
Air Partner received a request to charter 1,100 kg of cargo from Brno–Tuřany Airport to Al Abraq International in the eastern part of Libya.
The shipment contained parts sourced from various European manufacturers, including radio communication equipment, weather stations, antennas, runway lighting equipment. All were required to support the ongoing work to update Libya’s airport infrastructure.
Libya has faced seven years of political crisis with several local armed factions controlling different parts of the country. A ceasefire agreement was reached in early September but the situation on the ground in some parts of the country remains volatile.
Mike Hill, director of freight, Air Partner, said: “We were pleased to complete this important flight as a significant step in the renewal of airport services in eastern Libya. The improvement of conditions on the ground will not only facilitate the continued work of NGOs in the area but also assist future aviation operations and commerce in Libya.”
