Volga-Dnepr Group opens operations base in Houston

An Antonov An-124-100 freighter aircraft, crew, technical support teams and special loading equipment will be dedicated to George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

 
   Volga-Dnepr Group said it has opened an operations base at Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport to give customers in North and South America “faster and more economic access” to its delivery solutions.
   The Group opened a sales office in Houston in 2001.
   “With the inauguration of the new Operations Base, the Group will dedicate one of its 12 Antonov An-124-100 freighter aircraft as well as crews, technical support teams and special loading equipment for unique cargoes to the Houston facility,” said Konstantin Vekshin, executive president of charter cargo operations for Volga-Dnepr. “The base will be staffed by load planning engineers and load masters, operations, navigation and ground-handling specialists, and provide unique and specialized on-site engineering and delivery solutions to enable the safe and secure transportation of heavy and outsize cargoes.
   “The commitment brings us even closer to our customers geographically and enhances our ability to provide special ‘out-of-the-box’ solutions which make our customers’ lives easier,” Vekshin said.
   The operations base was expected to create 30 to 40 jobs in the local area.

The Section 232 aluminum tariffs help level the playing field for American workers and restore an industry decimated by unfair foreign competition.
