Volga-Dnepr Technics has been awarded a contract to provide maintenance services in Moscow for Aeroflot-Russian Airlines’ Boeing 737NG (Next Generation) aircraft fleet.
The agreement for maintenance at the city’s Sheremetyevo Airport also includes a provision for Volga-Dnepr Technics to supply qualified personnel for maintenance supervision and other field services in support of Aeroflot’s flight operations. Volga-Dnepr Technics will also provide practical advice on refueling and aircraft towing procedures at its MRO facility in Moscow for Aeroflot personnel.
Vladimir Romadanov, Executive President of Volga-Dnepr Technics Moscow, said: “This contract awarded by a global air transport industry leader is further proof that we are advancing in the right direction by broadening the scope of our capabilities both in Russia and in international markets. We are proud to have provided maintenance services to Aeroflot previously and the quality of our work helped in winning this new contract. We now look forward to reinforcing and extending our business relationship with Aeroflot by increasing the scope of aircraft maintenance services we provide to the airline.”
Igor Parakhin, Deputy General Director-Technical at Aeroflot-Russian Airlines, added: “Our main reasons for choosing Volga-Dnepr Technics as a maintenance provider were the company’s hands-on experience and track record of successfully completing projects. From our prior experience with them we know that we can rely on their service quality, and we hope this new business relationship will be mutually beneficial and profitable.”
Volga-Dnepr Technics operates maintenance bases at nine international airports in Russia, Germany and the UAE (SVO, DME, VKO, KJA, ULY, SHJ, FJR, LEJ, and FRA). Line maintenance stations are present at each airport in the Moscow Air Transportation Cluster. At Moscow’s Sheremetyevo, Domodedovo and Vnukovo Airports VDT provides maintenance for Boeing 747 and Airbus А320 family aircraft, as well as Boeing 737CL and NG airplanes. Earlier this year, within the annual international conference and exhibition “MRO in Russia and CIS” Volga-Dnepr Technics received an award for its progress in developing maintenance and repair operations.
