Volga-Dnepr Technics adds maintenance unit at Frankfurt
October 9 - Volga-Dnepr Technics (VDT), part of Russia's Volga-Dnepr Group, has opened an aircraft line maintenance station at Frankfurt Airport, Germany.
Approval to provide aircraft maintenance at Frankfurt Airport follows a successful audit of Volga-Dnepr Technics by the German CAA, supported by the company's EASA Part-145 (DE.145.0468) certificate for the provision of maintenance services for Boeing B747-200/300/400 aircraft (CF6-50/80). The company employs EASA Part 66 B1/B2, CAT A certified personnel.
In addition to line maintenance services, VDT will lease out ground support equipment, tools and special vehicles and sell consumables such as oils and lubricants.
The first customer of VDT's maintenance services at Frankfurt Airport was its key partner, AirBridgeCargo Airlines - also part of Volga-Dnepr Group - which operates a fleet of Boeing B747 freighters. Prospectively, Volga-Dnepr Technics plans to add maintenance of the B747-8 to its certificate as well as narrow-body aircraft types with higher demand in the market, such as the Boeing 737 and Airbus À320.
With this latest investment, VDT now operates at the two major Germany-based airports featuring the largest freight traffic, Leipzig and Frankfurt. At Leipzig Airport, the company provides A-check line maintenance scope and has future plans to provide heavy maintenance checks.
