Volga-Dnepr Group and The Boeing Company have signed a contract for AN-124-100 aircraft contingency airlift services in Boeing 787 production cycle logistics.

Under this contract, Volga-Dnepr and Boeing agree that the Russian AN-124-100 operator will provide The Boeing Company with ad-hoc and urgent air logistics services throughout the manufacturer’s 787 program life cycle.

For the years of its dominance in the outsize and non-standard cargo market, Volga-Dnepr has accumulated a vast experience in supporting air logistics projects. Unique in kind and tailor-made technical solutions that have been and are being successfully implemented by Volga-Dnepr are always the decisive factor of choice in favor of the company as the integral transport component of complex production projects.

“This announcement of Boeing’s dedication to benefit from the use of our services in 787 logistics means not just a brand new evolution in relationship with The Boeing Company, but a sign of trust and reliance on us by our partner,” says Alexey Isaikin, President of Volga-Dnepr Group.

The long-term commitment for Volga-Dnepr’s services in the logistics chain of such large-scale project will smoothly complement to capabilities of Boeing’s in-house LCF fleet in case of any critical requirement for urgent airlift. Involvement of Volga-Dnepr will not be limited to only providing AN-124-100 cargo capacities. The Russian specialist carrier will, most of all, bring in the whole range of its knowledge and expertise in international logistics integration.

This cooperation of the American and Russian companies serves as an outstanding example of partnership in the high-tech field and as an example of a strong commercial relationship between the USA and Russia.
