Cubans to Rock to Rolling Stones; Atlas Air Delivers the Equipment

[ March 29, 2016   //   ]

Atlas Air, Inc. provided essential cargo lift to help The Rolling Stones perform an historic concert in Havana, Cuba.
An Atlas Boeing 747-400 freighter carried 97 tons of staging and musical equipment from Mexico City to Havana, with a stop at Miami International Airport, on March 19. It was the first commercial charter operation of its kind by a U.S.-based carrier.
“With our global reach and flexible scale, our customers depend on Atlas Air for reliable service anywhere in the world,” said Michael Steen, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, Atlas Air Worldwide. “As the first U.S. freighter operator chosen to operate into Cuba, we were delighted to support this one-of-a-kind event.”
The Rolling Stones will perform a free concert in Havana on March 25 — the first open-air performance in the country by a British rock band.
