Volga-Dnepr: the Bridge in the Air
This year, Volga-Dnepr Group celebrates its 25th anniversary in the cargo sector of the air transport industry. Volga-Dnepr, after initially creating the market niche, became a global leader in the heavy and outsize air cargo segment. The charter airline transports heavy and outsize cargo using a fleet of AN-124-100 Ruslan and IL 76TD-90VD freighter airplanes, as well as AirBridge Cargo Airlines, which operates a scheduled airline fleet of Boeing 747s and 737s. With its modern aircraft and the latest advances in carrying freight, Volga-Dnepr is able to transport complex air cargo deliveries worldwide.
