Atran Airlines grows fleet to six full freighters
Atran Airlines, the Russian air express carrier within Volga-Dnepr Group, has enlarged its fleet to six freighters with the deployment of the second Boeing 737-800BCF.
Following on from the success of effective operations of its first B737-800BCF which was delivered earlier this year, the carrier will beef up its service quality and will facilitate further network expansion, helping to leverage the burgeoning traffic of e-commerce shipments, including mail consignments, between China, Russia, CIS and beyond on the backdrop of the growing demand for cross-border purchases.
The gradual launch of new destinations allowed the carrier to achieve more than 15-fold volume upsurge from China to Russia, eightfold increase of domestic traffic, and more than sixfold uptick from Europe to Russia. (ah)
