Freighter to door delivery

Volga-Dnepr Airlines has delivered an 11-ton oil and gas pump right to the door of a customer in the town of Farab, Turkmenistan.
The oil production unit was transported from Maastricht Airport in the Netherlands on behalf of the airline’s customer, Agility Projects Rotterdam.
The pump was packed inside a two-ton wooden crate to protect it throughout its journey onboard one of Volga-Dnepr’s IL-76TD-90VD freighters and by road on arrival in Central Asia.   
“Agility Projects Rotterdam asked us to not only organise the necessary permits for the flight to Mary International Airport but to also arrange the transportation of the oil and gas pump overland in Turkmenistan to Farab, where it is to be used,” commented Alexander Kartashov, sales executive of Volga-Dnepr Airlines.
