Volga-Dnepr completes 1,100th flight for oil and gas industry

VOLGA-DNEPR Airlines has completed its 1,100th flight for customers in the oil and gas industry with this delivery of 45 tonnes of equipment from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil to Prestwick, Scotland.
The cargo consisted of specialist equipment for a water-driven excavation system and auxiliary equipment for use in drilling operations and seabed engineering.
The IL-76TD-90VD freighter flight was ordered by Chapman Freeborn Airchartering’s Brazilian company Fretamento e Logística do Brasil.
“The delivery of oil and gas equipment across the globe is one of the key areas of Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ expertise. This milestone flight was the 1,100th oil and gas transportation service by Volga-Dnepr,” says sales executive Alexander Kartashov.
To date, the airline’s fleet of An-124-100s and IL-76TD-90VD cargo aircraft has safely delivered some 74,000 tonnes of equipment for oil and gas industry customers.
“In our 23-year history, Volga-Dnepr Airlines has become an acknowledged expert in this field, cooperating with such leading international corporations as ExxonMobil, Total, Shlumberger, Cameron, and National Oilwell Varco,” adds Kartashov.
