Volga-Dnepr Airlines flies 30-ton shipment from Maastricht to Varna


Volga-Dnepr Airlines has transported a 30-tonne shipment, including a 25-tonne cable spool, from Maastricht to Varna.
The urgent shipment was necessary to replace failed equipment on the Noble Globetrotter II drilling vessel developing an offshore gas field in the Black Sea.
The shipment was completed in just three days, from receiving the flight inquiry to completing the delivery, reported London's Air Cargo News.
Volga-Dnepr Airlines sales executive, Rinat Akhmetov, said: "The customer's prime objective was to deliver the cargo before the ship's scheduled exit from the Black Sea port of Varna.
"Working within this tight timeframe, we managed to order a crane to load the cargo in Maastricht, obtain a Dutch flight permit in three hours instead of the standard three days and, despite it being a weekend, promptly arrange the necessary papers to fly into Bulgaria," he said.
Transportation of the spool on board one of carrier's IL-76TD-90VD aircraft required a bespoke engineering solution and involved special tooling manufactured in the Netherlands.
Additional loading equipment, along with a relief flight crew, was brought to Maastricht by another IL-76TD-90VD the day before, which helped to expedite the contracted flight without delay.
