By Damian Brett

Volga-Dnepr Airlines has completed a charter flight to deliver of oil & gas equipment for P-cube aviation.

Four compressors and two rotors, weighing more than 26 tons, were delivered onboard an IL-76TD-90VD from Singapore to Melbourne (Australia) for urgent repair and maintenance works.

 The airline processed all flight permits within one day to guarantee flight take-off on July 14 to get in ahead of an approaching national holiday in Singapore.

 “Traditionally we have always had a strong presence in the oil & gas transportation market. Despite turbulent times in 2020, major oil & gas projects are still vital to various national economies, which explains our two-fold uptick in 2020 volumes for this sector so far,” said Ekaterina Andreeva, commercial director for Volga-Dnepr Airlines.

This year to date, Volga-Dnepr has transported more than 2,000 tons for the sector.
