Volga-Dnepr Airlines flew essential supplies on a dedicated An-124-100 charter flight for Moria camp refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos, a week after the fire destroyed their camp. The flight from Vienna to Athens was organized in cooperation with Chapman Freeborn Airmarketing.

Commercial director Ekaterina Andreeva, said: “It is heartbreaking to see so many people losing their homes, especially families with kids. We feel that it is our duty to help those in need and guarantee at least the provision of daily necessities. With aligned procedures in place and well-tuned teamwork, we managed to get flight approvals within three days, operate the flight without delay with fast and flawless loading/offloading of cargo.”
