Volga-Dnepr Airlines helps Air Caraïbes to minimise AOG time
Nov 2, 2018: Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ new AOG (aircraft on ground) service was utilized for urgent transportation of 3 metre wide, eight tonne aero engine for French airline Air Caraïbes.
The delivery was completed using one of Volga-Dnepr’s Il-76TD-90VD freighters.
To facilitate the fast response, Russia’s Volga-Dnepr operated two Il-76TD-90VD charter flights. Its team of AOG specialists organised delivery of the replacement aircraft engine from Paris Orly Airport to Lajes Airport on Terceira Island in the Azores where the Air Caraïbes’ Airbus 330-323 had made an emergency landing due to engine malfunction. The second Il-76TD-90VD flight transported the damaged engine back to Orly Airport for maintenance works and restoration.
The standard operating procedures established by Volga-Dnepr’s AOG service was followed for the transportation.
Once a request is received, all related Volga-Dnepr departments are placed on alert, ready to activate the necessary fast coordination and approval of all the flight preparation stages, including loadability confirmation, airport slots, and gaining traffic rights approvals.
“Being an air cargo operator ourselves, we understand the importance of a timely, effective, and traceable solution for customers facing an AOG situation. Our 28 years of experience and expertise, as well as our unique freighter fleet, enables us to guarantee the prompt and high-quality response needed in these situations. We see an increasing demand for our AOG service and will continue to expand the boundaries of our services, embracing new solutions and technologies for the benefit of our customers,” commented Robert van de Weg, vice president for Sales and Marketing, Volga-Dnepr Group.
Volga-Dnepr Group, in concert with strategic partner CargoLogicAir, announced the introduction of a new AOG service during the Farnborough International Airshow earlier this year and has since been developing this dedicated service since to provide the best possible response to AOG charter requests, utilising both scheduled and chartered flights, and strengthening its AOG team worldwide.
