Volga-Dnepr partners with K+N to transport power turbine

By Rachelle Harry

Volga-Dnepr Airlines has teamed up with Kuehne+Nagel (K+N) to move a power turbine from the UK to Russia. 

The cargo, which weighed 4.5 tonnes, was loaded into Volga-Dnepr’s An-124 aircraft (IL-76TD-90VD) aircraft using its onboard crane system before being flown to the Midlands, UK.

Oleg Makushkin, head of procurement and airline relations, Russia and CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), Kuehne+Nagel, Russia, commented: “At this challenging time it is very important to have a reliable partner who is able to provide a consistent level of service.”

Ekaterina Andreeva, commercial director for Volga-Dnepr Airlines, added: “For over two decades Volga-Dnepr Airlines and K+N have partnered on projects which have allowed us to innovate and develop new solutions together – pushing the boundaries on what air freight can do.

“Starting with our An-124 and IL-76 charter flights, and then progressing to partnership on scheduled operations with AirBridgeCargo Airlines, we work under the alignment of specialty cargo transportation across the globe.

The two companies have partnered to work on special cargo projects, such as this, for more than 25 years.
