April 8 - German world champion biathlete Erik Lesser has flown, along with a consignment of sports equipment, from Finland to Russia onboard one of Volga-Dnepr's IL-76TD-90VD freighters.

Lesser joined the crew onboard Volga-Dnepr's IL-76TD-90VD freighter from Helsinki, which was carrying 19 tonnes of sports clothing and equipment intended for use in the 2014-2015 Biathlon World Cup in Khanty-Mansiysk.

"The most unusual part of this delivery was, of course, the presence of the famous German biathlete, Erik Lesser, as a flight attendant onboard the IL-76TD-90VD aircraft," commented Maxim Prokhorov, sales executive at Volga-Dnepr Airlines.
