Volga-Dnepr Airlines (VD) has completed a charter flight to guarantee delivery of much-needed oil and gas equipment for P-cube aviation.
Four compressors and two rotors, weighing more than 26 tons, were delivered onboard an IL-76TD-90VD from Singapore to Melbourne, Australia, for urgent repair and maintenance works.
VD operational specialists managed to process all flight permits within one day to guarantee flight take-off on 14 July.
“Traditionally we have always had a strong presence in the Oil & Gas transportation market. Our expertise and in-depth knowledge, coupled with our charter experience enables permits to be processed seamlessly, making us a recognised name in air freight for this highly technical sector,” said Ekaterina Andreeva, Commercial Director for Volga-Dnepr Airlines.
“Despite turbulent times in 2020, major Oil & Gas projects are still vital to various national economies, which explains our two-fold uptick in 2020 volumes for this sector so far.”
For more than 30 years Volga-Dnepr has ensured safe and on-schedule movements of a diverse range of oil and gas cargo to some of the world’s most remote destinations.
This year to date, Volga-Dnepr has surpassed transportation of over 2,000 tonnes for this sector.
