CargoLogicAir Take Delivery of their Fourth Boeing Freighter
British-based CargoLogicAir (CLA) and the UK’s only maindeck cargo airline recently announced they had taken delivery of their fourth Boeing 747 freighter.
Their latest addition is a Boeing 747-400ERF that will be initially joining their fleet on an operating lease to help meet the growing customer demand on U.S. routes operated by CLA. The new freighter is a key part of CLA’s five-year growth strategy as the airline plan to increase their fleet to five freighters by 2020.
CargoLogicAir CEO, David Kerr said, “2018 has been our busiest year of operations so far with volumes and revenues doubling in the first nine months compared to last year. The delivery of our fourth 747F will enable us to meet peak season demand, especially in our core US market, and increase our options in terms of frequencies and new routes as we head into 2019. We are continuing to consult with our customers to identify where they need maindeck cargo capacity and expect to be adding new destinations to our network in the first quarter of next year.”
Customers of CLA will benefit from the additional aircraft capacity resulting in seamless connections into the international network of CLA’s strategic partner, AirBridgeCargo Airlines, extending their reach to other markets in Europe, Russia, the Americas and the Asia Pacific region.
The fleet at CargologicAir now comprises of three Boeing 747-400 freighters and one 747-8F providing a cargo capacity of up to 139 tonnes, along with the option of both nose and side-door loading. Nearly 200 experienced air cargo professionals support the airline’s global network.
With their headquarters located close to London Heathrow Airport and their main base of operations housed at London Stansted Airport, CLA’s growing route network connects customers in the UK with prime export markets in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia Pacific, along with enabling international businesses to supply goods to British companies and consumers.
