Volga-Dnepr launches global AOG service as demand from Aerospace customers soar

Volga-Dnepr Group has launched a new AOG service to manage the delivery of urgent spare parts to aircraft stranded around the world.

Supported by a 24/7 team of aviation professionals, the cargo carrier group said it will offer the “fastest and most cost-efficient solution” using either air charter or scheduled cargo services, utilising the Group’s fleet of Boeing 747, Boeing 737, An-124-100 and IL-76TD-90VD freighters.

AOG spares carried on the Group’s scheduled services in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific will be confirmed on the first available flight.

Volga-Dnepr Group vice president of sales and marketing, Robert van de Weg said: “As aircraft operators ourselves and as a provider of transportation and logistics services to the Aerospace industry for the last 28 years, we know only too well how important it is to have a fast, trackable and managed solution to deal with AOG situations.

“For every airline, safety and security is their main priority but it is also important to get aircraft operational again quickly for both customer service and economic reasons when they suffer a technical fault.

“Airlines are continually focused on improving the reliability of their services through expansion of their fleets, route networks, and optimisation of their aircraft and engines, so it is now more important than ever to have the peace of mind of knowing that pre-emptive solutions are in place to handle their grounded aircraft and to ensure minimal impact to their routine operations.”
