34 Monet works of art travel with Air France Cargo


In transporting 34 of the 170 works presented in the Monet exhibition at the Grand Palais de Paris - which ended a few days ago - Air France Cargo contributed to the success of this event which attracted the highest number of visitors to an exhibition in France in over 40 years.


The works were transported in the holds of passenger aircraft between Paris and Boston, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, Montreal, New York, Toronto and Stockholm. Three of these works were transferred by Boeing 747-ERF to Houston.


Concerning the transport of these very specific pieces, Air France-KLM Cargo offers a tailored service, "Variation Art",  transporting every year many works of art around the world in very strict safety conditions. This "Variation Art" service is particularly intended for museums, galleries, governmental organizations or forwarding agents specialized in the transport of works of art - paintings, statues, sculptures - as well as musical instruments. Dedicated teams receive special training on how to handle these specific goods: ranging from handling techniques to special loading procedures, via secure protection of storage premises and consulting in the transportation of arts works.
