RUSSIA's Volga-Dnepr Airlines new freighter, with a reduced four-man crew, IL-76TD-90VD, has delivered 20 tonnes of coiled tubing from Malabo, Equatorial Guinea for oil production in Prestwick outside Glasgow.

The flight carried a coiled tubing which is a continuous length of steel or composite tubing used for well drilling and intervention operations. Its flexibility makes it a cost and time-effective solution by reducing cost of repair and maintenance.

Airnautic France, a charter broker and Volga-Dnepr's subsidiary AirBridgeCargo Airlines, operated the flight which loaded the equipment by forklifts and cranes.

Airnautic said using the new freighter was a first for the company and it was "proud to charter it into Europe."

Using the Kupol-III-76M-VD flight navigation system, the IL-76TD-90VD is equipped with PS-90A-76 engines and modern avionics.
