Russian outsize freight carrier Volga-Dnepr has signed a general aircraft construction agreement to take three more Ilyushin Il-76TD-90VD transports, and placed options on a further ten of the type.
Volga-Dnepr has already introduced the first of a pair of Il-76TD-90VDs – a much-modernised version of the Il-76TD, enabling it to operate in regions closed to its forerunner – and will add the second during the third quarter of this year.

During a briefing at the Paris Air Show yesterday the Moscow-based carrier said it had reserved another three Il-76TD airframes at the Tashkent-based TAPO aircraft production plant.
Volga-Dnepr has reached the agreement with the Ilyushin interstate aviation company, which is part of the United Aircraft Corporation and comprises the Voronezh-based VASO aircraft plant and the Ilyushin aviation complex.
