CargoLogicAir adds fourth Boeing 747F to fleet
Oct 26, 2018: CargoLogicAir (CLA) has taken delivery of its fourth Boeing 747 freighter. The latest 747-400ERF joins the airline’s fleet on an operating lease and will initially be used to meet customer demand on CLA’s US routes. The delivery also keeps CLA on track with its five-year growth strategy, which is based on the airline operating a fleet of five freighters by 2020.
David Kerr, CEO of CargoLogicAir, 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.”
Additional aircraft capacity will also enable customers to benefit further from seamless connections into the international network of CLA’s strategic partner, AirBridgeCargo Airlines, extending its reach to more markets in Europe, Russia, the Americas and Asia Pacific.
Headquartered close to London Heathrow Airport and with its main operating base at London Stansted, CLA’s growing route network connects customers in the UK with prime export markets in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia Pacific, as well as enabling international businesses to supply goods to British companies and consumers.
CLA’s network is designed to support customers in key industry sectors which require scheduled maindeck cargo services to serve their key markets, such as Houston and the United Arab Emirates for oil&gas shipments, Atlanta for pharmaceutical, aerospace and automotive cargoes, Mexico City for automotive parts and components, and Hong Kong’s thriving e-commerce market to the UK and Europe.
CargoLogicAir is also carrying regular shipments of off-size cargoes that can only be transported on maindeck cargo aircraft, and providing charter operations to deliver humanitarian aid to regions of the world affected by natural disasters.
CargoLogicAir’s fleet now consists of three Boeing 747-400 freighters and one 747-8F offering a payload capacity of up to 139 tonnes as well as nose- and side-door loading capabilities. The airline’s global network is now supported by a team of almost 200 experienced air cargo professionals.
