Volga-Dnepr Airlines approved to handling cargo at Russian airports

05/13/2011

The Federal Air Transport Agency of Russia’s Ministry of Transport has awarded a certificate to Volga-Dnepr Airlines to perform its own cargo handling at Russian airports.

The certificate gives Volga-Dnepr Airlines the right to handle and load various types of cargo at Russian airports without the need to use external agencies. The move will enable Volga-Dnepr to increase its aircraft operating efficiency by shortening ground time and reduce its transportation costs for domestic and international services.

Obtaining certification is an additional step in support of Volga-Dnepr Group’s ‘Cargo Supermarket’ business strategy. Approval to conduct cargo handling further increases the capabilities of Volga-Dnepr as an air transport operator and improves its competitive advantage.
