An-225 arrives at Bahrain from Cairo International Airport

THE Antonov An-225, the biggest, heaviest aircraft in the world, arrives at Bahrain (BIA) from Cairo International Airport, Egypt.
Affectionately known to the aviation world as either Mriya – which means ‘dream’ – or Cossack, the giant aircraft’s landing at BIA was considered a great milestone that showcases the high-quality facilities and services at the airport and its ability to receive all aircraft types, regardless of size, says the airport’s cargo manager Robert Mills.
The aircraft is equipped to carry very heavy shipments of up to 250 tonnes and 70 metres long.
