Volga-Dnepr to launch smaller cargo aircraft
17 / 04 / 2011
AT the Freighters World conference in London Dennis Gliznoutsa, executive senior vice-president sales for Volga-Dnepr Airlines, revealed that the Russian airline is looking to bring online smaller aircraft in the near future.
“We are looking to add to our fleet by bringing on smaller aircraft to promote the hub, distribution and feeder services for the shorter routes in Russia,” Gliznoutsa told Air Cargo News.
More details will be revealed at the Transport Logistic show in Munich in May, he said.
Volga-Dnepr currently operates 24 aircraft. Gliznoutsa informed the audience that there are now 183 all-cargo aircraft currently registered with Russia‚s Federal Aviation Authority.
Russia as a whole is facing criticism for its stringent Customs controls limiting foreign airlines stopping in the country and making further internal flights.
