Volga-Dnepr taps Atran B737-400F


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 B747 freighters were all far too big for this specific flight. Instead, the perfect aircraft solution was to charter one of the B737-400 freighters operated by Atran Airlines, the Group’s express cargo carrier.
