All Boeing 747 AirBridgeCargo aircraft are detained on the ground due to Western sanctions
Russia's largest airline, Volga-Dnepr Group, has suspended all Boeing flights due to Western sanctions. Sanctions have disrupted the supply of aircraft and parts to Russia. The United States and Europe have closed their airspace to Russian airlines, and Moscow has responded by imposing the same measure.
Volga-Dnepr Group said in a statement that it had stopped operations of two of its subsidiaries - AirBridgeCargo and Atran, which use 18 Boeing 747 and 6 Boeing 737 aircraft, due to sanctions and a decision by the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA). suspend their certificates of airworthiness.
Volga-Dnepr, which describes itself as a world leader in the oversized and heavy cargo market, continues to fly with Russian-made aircraft, including An-124 and Il-76 cargo planes.
