Volga-Dnepr Airlines 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 for urgent repair and maintenance works.

With an approaching national holiday in Singapore, Volga-Dnepr operational specialists managed to process all flight permits within one day to guarantee flight take-off on July 14.

“Traditionally we have always had a strong presence in the oil and gas transportation market. Our expertise and in-depth knowledge, coupled with our charter experience enable permits to be processed seamlessly, making us a recognized name in air freight for this highly technical sector. Despite turbulent times in 2020, major oil and gas projects are still vital to various national economies, which explains our two-fold uptick in 2020 volumes for this sector so far,” commented Ekaterina Andreeva, commercial director for Volga-Dnepr Airlines.

For more than 30 years Volga-Dnepr has ensured safe and on-schedule movements of a diverse range of Oil & Gas cargo to some of the world’s most remote destinations. This year to date, Volga-Dnepr has surpassed transportation of over 2,000 tons for this sector.
