Volga-Dnepr Airlines helps to fight pirates

  03.06.2009    

Volga-Dnepr Airlines has transported supplies and equipment for Japan's Ministry of Defense (JGSDF) from Sendai, Japan to the Republic of Djibouti in Africa as part of a major multi-national action to wipe out sea piracy off the coast of Somalia.
The airline operated two Antonov AN-124 flights to Djibouti - May 20 and 26 – delivering over 120 tons of cargo. The shipments were destined to support Japanese defense forces deployed in the area of anti-piracy operations.
Pirates operating in the Gulf of Aden are now being confronted by a coalition of naval forces from 16 countries. The Japanese Navy has been carrying out its mission near the Somali shores since late March.
