Hi folks,

yesterday i flew to Leipzig/Germany (LEJ) and saw an Atran AN-12 on the Tarmac. Today i left in late afternoon and saw two Atran An-12. Who is Atran? and are they having a project or are they chartered for some company in Leipzig?

Thanks and best regards
Amir

Hallo Amir,

well, the "Mitteldeutsche Flughafen AG" managing both LEJ and DRS and ATRAN have created a joint-venture called "Eastern Air Cargo" (http://www.easternaircargo.de). While the main goal of the company is to promote LEJ as a cargo gateway to the east, this company has offices in Frankfurt/Main and I believe in Moscow DME as well. ATRAN has scheduled cargo services 5 times a week between LEJ and DME (with a night stop in LEJ) offering connections to over 100 russian and CIS-cities. Usually this flight is an AN-12, but sometimes IL76 or even AN 22 are used. Additionally, in peak times ATRAN has direct flights with AN-12 to Kazan. This LEJ-DME route is the main route of EAC, but they have brought various Antonovs and Iljushins of different operators to LEJ, as well.

One question: what have u been doing in Leipzig (or maybe Halle)?

mfg
Daniel

I might add that the second An 12 was most likely the Kazan flight as, like I said above, IL76s are used if there is more cargo to DME than an An 12 can hold
