Volga-Dnepr flies bottle filling machine to Uganda

Volga-Dnepr Airlines has delivered a Krones bottle-filling machine and additional equipment, operating a charter flight for a major soft drinks bottler in Uganda.

The Antonov AN-124-100 was operated for its customer, LS International Cargo, with cargo being loaded in Munich to be delivered to Entebbe for Crown Beverages.

The new machinery aims to boost its production facilities and volumes to guarantee smooth distribution across Uganda and East Africa.

Volga-Dnepr’s specialists organised an inspection of the cargo in Munich to find the most suitable loading solution, provide suggestions for preparation, and to minimise the time required for airport handling procedures on the day of departure.

On the day of the flight, the machinery was loaded into the AN-124-100 using special loading equipment and successfully delivered to Entebbe International Airport.

Volga-Dnepr UK commercial manager, Ekaterina Andreeva says: “The ideal location of our regional operational base in Leipzig, Germany, with available operations personnel and essential loading equipment, made it possible to save time while organising on-site visits to Munich for cargo inspection.

“Accessibility of the airplane at our local operational base in Germany made the costs for positioning the aircraft minimal and the charter flight attractive for our customer price-wise.”
