Fifth IL-76TD-90VD freighter join Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ fleet

  02.07.2012    

Volga-Dnepr Airlines has added a fifth new IL-76TD-90VD cargo aircraft to its fleet. The modernised 50 tonnes capacity freighter performed its first commercial flight in June.  
In line with Volga-Dnepr’s four previous versions of the aircraft, the new Ilyushin - tail number RA-76511 – was produced at the Chkalov Aviation Factory in Tashkent under the terms of a contract signed by OAK-Transport Aircraft and Volga-Dnepr Leasing during the Moscow Air Show in 2007.   
According to Andrew Pakhomov, General Director of Volga-Dnepr Leasing, OAK and the Chkalov Factory have discharged in full their respective obligations in connection with construction of all five IL-76TD-90VDs for Volga-Dnepr Group.  
He said: "At the present time a programme of further acquisitions of more IL-76TD-90VDs is being considered to reinforce Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ fleet. The aircraft has successfully demonstrated its excellent performance capability in the international air cargo market and therefore Volga-Dnepr Group forecasts it needs to expand its Ilyushin fleet to 20 airplanes by 2030.”     
The IL-76 modernisation programme was initiated by Volga-Dnepr Group in 2002 and the first IL-76TD-90VD was put into commercial operation in summer 2006. The IL-76TD-90VD meets all current and future ICAO standards and can operate globally without any limitations. It is powered by PS-90A-76 engines and advance avionics, including the Integrated Flight and Navigation System KUPOL-III-76MVD. Volga-Dnepr is the only carrier in the world operating a fleet of five brand new IL-76TD-90VD freighters.
