Volga-Dnepr Airlines has delivered two helicopters from Almaty, Kazakhstan, to Kuala Lumpur for PT Komala Indonesia to support Malaysian seasonal wildfire-fighting efforts.

The two Mi-8 helicopters, weighing more than 20 tons, were delivered together with spare parts, instruments, and accessories by one of Volga-Dnepr’s IL-76TD-90VDs. To optimize the choice of aircraft which Volga-Dnepr Airlines provides to its customers, the helicopters were disassembled to meet loading requirements.

Through thirty years of operating one of the world’s most diverse fleets including An-124-100s, Il-76TD-90VDs, B747-400F/-8Fs, and B737-400SFs/800BCFs – Volga-Dnepr has a reputation for air charter transportation of helicopters. Whilst there has been a gradual rise in requirements due to changing environmental demands, Volga-Dnepr also has expertise in delivering helicopters for humanitarian, rescue, and offshore purposes, now averaging nearly 45 machines carried per year.
