Russian cargo carrier Volga-Dnepr has put a fourth modernised Ilyushin Il-76TD-90VD freighter into revenue service.

The aircraft, registration RA-76503, has performed a non-scheduled flight from the carrier's Moscow Domodedovo base to Bahrain and back.

Volga-Dnepr commercial director Denis Gliznoutza expects Tashkent-based airframer TAPO to hand over the fifth Il-76TD-90VD in May.

He said: "These freighters perfectly fit into the general cargo market segment with growing demand for transporting up to 50t of freight."
