Robin Hood

RECENT freighter activity at Robin Hood Doncaster Airport, resulted in two large freighters arriving and being successfully handled simultaneously.

A Volga Dnepr Antonov 124, was first to arrive to collect 85,000 kilos of oil well equipment for delivery to Tyumen Russia and was closely followed by an MD-11F of Gemini Air Cargo to unload 74,000 kilos of general cargo for onward transportation to Lusaka Zambia.

Group airfreight development manager, Stuart Sinclair, said: “In this traditionally quiet period for charter traffic, the airport is delighted to be receiving continued support from the exporting and forwarding industries and has high expectations of bringing other similar opportunities to fruition over the coming weeks.”
