Chapman Freeborn Airchartering and Ruslan International have completed an assignment to Armenia to deliver broadcasting equipment from Tianjin in China to Armenia’s capital city, Yerevan.

The equipment was a gift from the people of China to the people of Armenia to ensure TV coverage of the country’s centenary commemorations, which remembers the estimated one and a half million civilians who lost their lives during the last days of the Ottoman empire.

Chapman Freeborn’s China team commissioned the flight on behalf of its client, selecting heavy air cargo specialist Ruslan International due to its expertise in transporting heavy and outsize cargo.

The 40-ton cargo was made up of three outside broadcast vehicles and associated equipment including a portable generator. The height of one of the vehicles presented something of a challenge – but one that Ruslan International resolved with the use of a special flat extension ramp that ensured a smooth loading process.

Commenting on the project, Allen Liu at Chapman Freeborn said: “We are proud to have assisted our client with this cargo charter operation and played a role in marking this important occasion. We would like to thank Ruslan International for its professionalism in ensuring that it reached its destination safely and on time.”
