Russia's Volga-Dnepr Group has been approved by Russian authorities to perform its own cargo handling at the country's airports.

The approval from Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency will enable Volga-Dnepr Airlines to increase its aircraft operating efficiency, shorten ground time and provide handling services to third parties, said the carrier.

"Approval to conduct cargo handling further increases the capabilities of Volga-Dnepr as an air transport operator and improves its competitive advantage," said Volga-Dnepr.
