Volga-Dnepr Airlines approved to handle cargo at Russian airports

May 17 - 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. 

Volga-Dnepr says that the move will enable it to increase its aircraft operating efficiency by shortening ground time and reduce its transportation costs for domestic and international services. In addition, Volga-Dnepr will be able to provide handling services to third parties. 

Obtaining certification and approval to conduct cargo handling is an additional step in support of Volga-Dnepr Group's 'Cargo Supermarket' business strategy it says and further increases the capabilities of Volga-Dnepr as an air transport operator.
