New freighters “A projected 980 new production freighters, valued at USD280 billion, will be delivered, of which more than 50 percent will be in the large freighter category, such as the B747F and B777F.” The passenger fleet, too, is growing.

knows that only too well: in partnership with CargoLogicAir, Volga-Dnepr Group launched a new aircraft on ground (AOG) service during the Farnborough International Airshow in 2018. The dedicated service uses both scheduled and chartered flights to deliver spare parts to help get stranded planes back in the air quickly.


Aerospace deliveries Between them, Volga-Dnepr Airlines and ABC completed around 800 deliveries of aerospace equipment in the first nine months of 2018, including satellites, aircraft engines and spare parts. They also operated more than 15 charters in response to AOG situations during that period. Late last year, for instance, Volga-Dnepr
