Oil and gas continues to pump up the volumes says Volga-Dnepr

Volga-Dnepr Airlines is continuing to see an upturn in the movement of oil and gas cargoes, including its latest delivery of pump and vaporizer skids to Seoul, South Korea.
Operated on behalf of Air Charter Service France for its customer, Heppner Transport & Logistics, one of Volga-Dnepr’s An-124-100 freighters transported the cargo from Switzerland’s EuroAirport Basle-Mulhouse Freiburg to Seoul’s Incheon International Airport.
The shipment, which included two pieces both weighing 19.5 tonnes and two weighing 14.8 tonnes each, was loaded using the An-124-100’s onboard crane system.  
The shipper prepared special wooden frames to fit underneath the 15-tonne pieces to help with the loading process, which took three hours to complete.  
Alexandre Busila, Cargo Director of Air Charter Service France, said: “The loading of this cargo needed meticulous preparation with the Volga-Dnepr Team. Thanks to our joint work the flight was a real success. This charter project shows that the O&G industry is still doing well.”
