Volga Dnepr stalls 737 drive

VOLGA Dnepr’s move towards a new 737 fleet has been put on hold due to poor markets, a cargo source told Air Cargo News.

The airline’s Dennis Gliznoutsa, executive senior vice-president sales, first revealed the plans at Freighters World Conference in April in London (UK).

The company had planned to run the smaller fleet for routes in Russia as a feeder service within the country for AirBridgeCargo, using a fleet of seven to ten freighter-converted 737s.

Company executive Valery Gabriel said in May he expected the new airline would be in service by the end of 2011, and that the 737 aircraft would be acquired from European carriers.
