Volga-Dnepr helps Proair to move heavy weight cargo from Vienna to Moscow
Moscow, January 13, 2015 (STAT):-Volga-Dnepr Group’s ‘cargo supermarket’ solution, which matches the best aircraft from its unique fleet to every customer request, came up with the perfect solution for a shipment of valuable cargo from Vienna to Moscow.
The charterer, Proair, urgently needed Volga-Dnepr’s help to move the high value, time sensitive shipment at short notice, knowing that although many aviation authorities were closed over the Christmas and New Year period, the airline would be able to gain the necessary permits and meet the strict delivery deadline.
The size and weight of the cargo meant Volga-Dnepr Group’s An-124-100, IL-76TD-90VD and Boeing 747 freighters were all far too big for this specific flight. Instead, the perfect aircraft solution was to charter one of the Boeing 737-400 freighters operated by Atran Airlines, the Group’s express cargo carrier.
Clair Gunn, Sales Executive at Volga-Dnepr UK, said: “The range and capability of the Group’s aircraft fleet means we can offer a unique in-house solution for cargo shipments of all sizes. In this case, using one of our Boeing 737Fs meant we not only met the tight delivery deadline set by the customer but also ensured we provided the most cost efficient solution too.”
