Volga-Dnepr stations new IL76TD-90VD aircraft at Leipzig/Halle Airport


The Russian cargo carrier Volga-Dnepr Airlines has stationed one of its new IL-76TD-90VD cargo planes at Leipzig/Halle Airport. The upgraded version of the tried and tested IL-76 is more powerful and much quieter than comparable aircraft.
Ivan Strelnikov, Deputy Commercial Director of Volga-Dnepr Airlines, explains the decision to deploy one of the latest generation of cargo aircraft at Leipzig/Halle Airport: "Stationing one of our new aircraft at Leipzig/Halle Airport will significantly reduce the costs of ferry flights and provide benefits for our German and European customers. The ideal location at the heart of Europe and the maintenance base directly on the site allow us to effectively use our highly efficient cargo plane."
Volga-Dnepr Airlines has five IL-76TD-90VD aircraft in its fleet in all. The aircraft is extremely efficient and can transport up to 50 tonnes of freight. The plane is also one of the quietest in its class and is classified according to Chapter 4 by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). Fuel consumption has also been cut by 15 percent compared to the previous model and the aircraft’s maximum range has been increased to 10,200 km. On-board electric winches and lifts make it easy to load heavy-duty items.
