Aviacon Zitotrans, a Russia-based private airline, founded in 1995, operates a fleet of IL-76TD aircraft.
For 25 years It has performed flights to/from/via more than 750 airports in 158 countries of the world.
Ilyushin-76 can do without most of the ground equipment necessary for a regular civil plane. Thanks to its rear ramp that allows roll-on and roll-off loading of wheeled and tracked vehicles and onboard equipment the plane allows unassisted loading and off-loading of heavy cargo.
Owning 5 the youngest IL76TDs out of less than 50 planes of that type left airworthy in the world commercial charter market, Aviacon is looking forward to providing you with reliable and high-quality airlift services. More...
Aviacon’s overseas operations are based upon our flight support team, which is run and manned 24/7/365.
It is capable of providing all-inclusive flight support (FPL, weather forecasts, traffic rights, airport arrangements, fuel uplifts) and ensures global coverage of the company operations.
IL76 – a versatile ramp freighter
IL76 cargo hold is fully-pressurized and has a titanium floor with fold-down roller conveyors.
Main cargo deck is equipped with 4 overhead cranes running the full length of the cargo hold, each of which with lifting capacity of 3,000 kg, and two winches.
A hydraulically-operated rear loading ramp itself can be used as a lift, with a capacity of up to 30,000 kg. It allows roll-on and roll-off loading of wheeled and tracked vehicles.
Although the cargo deck is compatible with international standard sea containers and pallets, the plane, originally designed as a military transport, proved to be also ideal for loading offloading of rolling stock, trucks, vehicles, out- and oversized gears, dangerous goods (including UN Class 1 cargo).
