Volga-Dnepr in first Russian landing

December 2 - Volga-Dnepr Airlines has landed the first AN-124-100 freighter in the Russian city of Salekhard, delivering a 26-tonne turbine for the Salekhard electric power station.

The turbine was first transported by road from Ukraine to Ulyanovsk, Russia, where the outsize cargo completed the necessary Customs clearance procedures before being loaded on board the AN-124-100.

Since it was the first time that Salekhard airport had welcomed such an aircraft, Volga-Dnepr and its customer UTair-Cargo CJSC had to obtain special permission to land the freighter.

Salekhard is the second new Russian airport to be served by Volga-Dnepr this year, with one of the company's AN-124-100 freighters landing at Khrabrovo Kaliningrad Airport in October to deliver an 80-tonne mobile power plant.
