Antonov Airlines have announced they have completed the transportation of the AC75 for the American Magic team and accompanying cargo from Providence, Rhode Island, USA to Barcelona, Spain, where the American Magic team is preparing to participate in the Louis Vuitton 37th America’s Cup.

The largest transport aircraft Antonov Airlines`s AN-124-100 was chartered with the logistics partners GAC Pindar and Solent Freight Services to deliver the AC75 racing yacht, 22 meters long, 5 meters wide and 3.5 meters high.
