Volga-Dnepr sees satellite business grow

June 4 - Volga-Dnepr Airlines has seen a strong increase in shipments for the aerospace industry, with 22 flights moving space satellites over a 12-week period ending May 2014.

One of its latest shipments was the 25-tonne Express AM6 Russian satellite which was carried on an AN-124-100 freighter from Krasnoyarsk in Russia to Baikonur, Kazakhstan in preparation for its launch later this year.

At the end of May, eight satellites were also carried on board an IL-76TD-90VD cargo flight from the Czech city of Pardubice to the Russian spaceport Yasnyi.

"Volga-Dnepr has over 23 years of expertise in meeting the delicate and complex requirements of aerospace customers and we see significant growth potential in the industry based on our track record, client base and technical expertise," said Andrei Rassadkin, regional sales director of Volga-Dnepr Airlines.

"Historically, the aerospace industry is one of Volga-Dnepr Airlines'  most important areas of expertise. This industry is fast-growing and dynamic, and the manufacture of space satellites is increasing as the number of launches and spaceports being built increases."
