At the beginning of December, VDT – the aircraft maintenance and repair division of Russia’s Volga-Dnepr Group – received authorization to provide maintenance services up to A-check for new aircraft types, notably the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737NG. Czech Airlines was the first airline to award an A320 maintenance contract to VDT at the Moscow airport, enabling checks to be completed on the aircraft during the winter long-time parking period. The range of works on daily-check and the elimination of defects was carried out promptly and efficiently.
"Czech Airlines is glad to begin mutually beneficial cooperation with Volga-Dnepr Technics. The daily-check was successfully performed on our A320 aircraft and it should also be noted that VDT’s specialists completed their work on-time and efficiently in spite of severe weather conditions at the airport. Under the terms of our agreement, VDT will provide services for daily-check, transit-check and other additional services," said Vadim Kalinin, the station manager for Czech Airlines at Sheremetyevo Airport.
Volga-Dnepr Technics is a subgroup of Volga-Dnepr Group – Russia’s leading air cargo airline organisation. VDT now operates maintenance stations at nine airports worldwide (SVO, DME, VKO, KJA, ULY, SHJ, FJR, LEJ, and FRA). Line maintenance stations are in operation at all airports within the Moscow Air Transportation Cluster (MAC) – Sheremetyevo, Domodedovo, and Vnukovo.
