Volga-Dnepr, K+N partner to deliver power turbine from UK to Russia

Volga-Dnepr Airlines and Kuehne & Nagel have recently partnered to deliver a power turbine from East Midlands, UK to Russia.

The 4.5-tonne shipment was safely loaded into Volga-Dnepr’s IL-76TD-90VD aircraft using its onboard crane system, and then expedited to its final destination on time.

“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. 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,” said Oleg Makushkin, head of procurement and airline relations, Russia and CIS, Kuehne+Nagel, Russia.

“For over two decades, Volga-Dnepr Airlines and Kuehne+Nagel have partnered on projects which have allowed us to innovate and develop new solutions together – pushing the boundaries on what air freight can do. 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 Volga Dnepr's top customers is an honor, and we hope for continuous development and quality enhancement between us for years to come,” commented Ekaterina Andreeva, commercial director for Volga-Dnepr Airlines.
