Volga-Dnepr Group: hygienically clean charters from China
Whilst Russia temporarily limits passenger air traffic from/to China, there are no current restrictions to cargo airlines.
Volga-Dnepr Group continues to operate charter flights into China despite the disruption to the air freight market. Flown commodities include essential items in response to the Coronavirus outbreak: masks, sanitiser gels, medical equipment, etc.
The group's fleets are also trying to keep global supply chains moving by supporting Chinese companies. On average three to five charter flights are being operated daily, with preventive measures being taken to ensure the safety of personnel, cargo and aircraft.
Volga-Dnepr is now even considering the introduction of a "clean charter" product promising the secure transportation of cargo during difficult epidemiological conditions. (ah)
