Airports World Company’s Ukrainian charter partner, ZetAvia, brought one of its six Ilyushin Il-76s to the Dubai Airshow’s static display line. Established in April 2009, ZetAvia specializes in cargo transport and maintenance of the big heavy lifter.

The fleet of six IL-76T/TDs registered under ZetAvia’s air operator certificate can deliver heavy and oversized equipment, fragile and valuable cargo, and even livestock. The company operates charter flights to the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and other regions around the world.

Due to the high demand for transportation in the Middle East and the presence here of major brokers, the aircraft­­­—under the ZAV callsign—operates flights to/from the UAE airports. The charter company has implemented a safety management system approved by the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine, and it holds a license to transport all types of cargo, including dangerous goods, and EASA TCO authorization for commercial air transport.

ZetAvia also performs all types of operational and periodic maintenance at its technical bases in Nikolaev, Ukraine, and Aqaba, Jordan.
