Volga-Dnepr in urgent Kuwait move

August 14 - Volga-Dnepr flew two simultaneous IL-76-90VD freighter flights carrying urgently required drilling equipment from Belgium to Kuwait.

The 16-tonne cargoes were loaded at Liege Airport; each piece was loaded into the hold of their respective freighter under their own power, using the aircraft's onboard ramp.

"As the cargo was required in Kuwait urgently, we operated two flights to ensure all of the drilling equipment arrived at the same time as opposed to a single aircraft taking longer to conduct both deliveries in sequence," stated Rinat Akhmetov, sales executive at Volga-Dnepr UK.

The flight was requested by German logistics concern Karpeles Flight Services, a subsidiary of Schenker.
