RUSSIA's Volga-Dnepr Airlines and Swiss forwarding giant Kuehne + Nagel have joined to deliver a power turbine from the English East Midlands to Russia.
The 4.5-ton shipment was loaded into Volga-Dnepr's IL-76TD-90VD aircraft using its onboard crane system, and then expedited to its final destination on time. The final destination was undisclosed.
'We always were of a high opinion on the quality of Volga-Dnepr Group's solutions, and this flight was no exception. At this challenging time it is very important to have a reliable partner who is able to provide a consistent level of service,' said Kuehne + Nagel's man in Russia, Oleg Makushkin.
'For us, Volga-Dnepr Group, including AirBridgeCargo, Volga-Dnepr Airlines, and ATRAN Airlines, is such a partner. Together we achieve inspiring results, and expect further development,' he said.
Said Volga-Dnepr commercial director Ekaterina Andreeva: '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.
'Having Kuehne + Nagel among VD's TOP customers is an honour, and we hope for continuous development and quality enhancement between us for years to come,' she said.
