AirBridgeCargo Airlines (АВС) has collaborated with ART-Сourier to transport more than 200 museum exhibits on a scheduled flight from Moscow to Hong Kong, says release.
The freighter operator carried the exhibits, which were packaged inside wooden climate-controlled crates equipped with shock sensors, on one of its Boeing 747-8 freighter aircraft.
The goods, which originated from the Moscow Kremlin Museums’ collection, will be exhibited at the ‘Tsar of All Russia. Holiness and Splendour of Power’ event taking place in Hong Kong from May until August this year.
“The exhibition guests will be able to delve into the times of Ivan the Terrible and his successors surrounded by museum exhibits dating back to the 16th and 18th centuries which rarely leave the Russian museum collections,” AirBridgeCargo said in a press release.
Nikolay Glushnev, general director of AirBridgeCargo Airlines, commented: “We are proud to be part of the international exhibition projects, especially now when we are slowly coming back to normal life and see the revival of cultural projects which had previously been suspended.
“Our gained experience and expertise, competence in the transportation of art pieces, aligned relations with reliable partners, such as ART-Courier is, enable us to deliver valuable cargo worldwide – from artwork to jewellery and beyond.”
