U.S. Oil and Gas Industry Helps CargoLogicAir’s First Scheduled Route Get Off to a Flying Start
Strong demand from the oil and gas industry for air cargo capacity from the U.S. to the Middle East has helped CargoLogicAir’s (CLA) first scheduled route get off to a flying start.
CLA launched a twice-weekly service in mid-August, offering customers a maindeck Boeing 747-400 freighter capacity with Europe-Mexico, Europe-Middle East and U.S.-Middle East connections. Departing from London Stansted every Wednesday and Saturday, the flights operate to Mexico City via Frankfurt, Houston, Atlanta and Abu Dhabi. In the Middle East, CargoLogicAir is also providing road feeder services to provide fast deliveries to Dubai International Airport (DXB), Dubai World Central (DWC) and Sharjah (SHJ).
The strong support of the U.S. oil and gas industry was highlighted by Steve Harvey, CLA’s Chief Commercial Officer at a special customer event in Houston. He told guests at the event: “The level of support from customers in the U.S. for our first scheduled cargo route has been exceptional, and particularly the amount of oil and gas cargo we have carried so far. This reinforces our strong confidence in international demand for high quality all-cargo services as well as the positive growth of the U.S. economy.”
Houston Airports Chief Operating Officer, Jesus Saenz, added: “The addition of CargoLogicAir is yet another step in the growing cargo operations at Bush Airport. Houston Airports remains committed to developing and improving intermodal connectivity, and new services such as these help Houston Airports achieve its mission of connecting the people, businesses, cultures and economies of the world to Houston.”
