Volga-Dnepr moves engines for GECAS


Volga-Dnepr Airlines has moved two GE-90 aero engines and accompanying equipment on its first charter flight for aviation leasing and finance firm, GECAS.

The 64 tonne payload was carried on an AN-124-100 flight from Dallas, Texas to London, and consists of the engines, two propulsors and fan cases, along with other equipment.

All eight cargo positions were carefully loaded using the AN-124-100’s internal crane through the rear door of the aircraft.

It is an honour to support both companies with our expertise and experience and to find the most cost-efficient logistics solutions for their needs.

“Our active and dynamic team of cargo professionals was able to organise this charter taking into consideration all requirements and guaranteeing a high-quality logistics service.”
