ULYANOVSKThe heavy freight operator Volga-Dnepr Airlines has relaunched its operations with the An-124-100. The first plane has taken off after the completion of technical checks and execution of service directives to a full extent.



Konstantin Vekshin, Chief Commercial Director of Volga-Dnepr Group, highlights:

"It appears that we have been able to re-start our An-124-100 operations before the end of this year. We are in the process of the diligent execution of the service directives, the technical checks are on the right track. As expected, our first An-124-100 is back in the air again. The ultimate return will be incremental and we will still take our time to follow the guidelines reflected in the service directives".

Volga-Dnepr has taken a thorough approach towards the re-launch of An-124 commercial operations to secure the utmost flight safety in line with existing industry and internal standards. The company will be discussing the return to service and availability of An-124 with the customers individually and will keep them and the market informed about the situation.

Volga-Dnepr Airlines had temporarily grounded its An-124-100(-150) freighters from November 25, 2020, until the investigation completion and identification of causes of an incident occurred in Tolmachevo airport in Novosibirsk.
