MAJOR oversize and super-heavy cargo transportation provider, Volga-Dnepr Airlines of Russian, has operated six AN-124-100 charters, transporting 48 street sterilisation vehicles from Shanghai to Dubai for final destination Abu Dhabi, where the vehicles will be used for a 'national disinfection programme' in preventative action against Covid-19.

The flights were in cooperation with Volga-Dnepr Airline's long-term partner and colleague in the heavy-lift market - Maximus Air. Each flight was loaded with 8 trucks, utilising 3 aircraft within a 4-day period - made possible by the world's largest fleet of AN-124-100s.



The Volga-Dnepr Group has been operating multiple charter flights daily as the international community battles against the spread of Covid-19. The full fleets of Volga-Dnepr Airlines, Air Bridge Cargo and Atran have all been utilised to meet the demand for transporting vast volumes of airfreight worldwide. Whilst most of the commodities flown have been PPE, the Volga-Dnepr charter team has also been delivering crucial oversized/ heavy-lift equipment to support global health infrastructures, reports AJOT.



Humanitarian director for Volga-Dnepr Group, Stuart Smith, commented: 'Volga-Dnepr Group's ability to provide customised solutions during this critical period is demonstrated by our incredible number of daily charters transporting medical and sanitary equipment. All four aircraft types operated by the Volga-Dnepr Group have been flying around the clock to keep international supply chains open.'
