ONE of the largest air freight carriers, the AN-124-100 Ruslan freighter aircraft, operated by the Volga-Dnepr Group/Ruslan International recently touched down at Grand Bahamas International Airport in a display of the island's potential as a logistic hub for air transportation, the Bahamas Tribune reported.

Grand Bahamas Shipyard officials contracted the company to transport two massive ship propellers to Europe. The aircraft is equipped with four jumbo jet engines and has a cargo capacity of 120 tonnes. The ship propellers each weigh 30 tonnes.

The operation was co-ordinated through the joint efforts of the Grand Bahamas Shipyard, Freeport Ship Services, Quality Services Ltd and the Grand Bahamas Airport Company.
