CargoLogicAir boosts Hong Kong and Atlanta freighter services
April 27, 2018: UK-based CargoLogicAir (CLA) has launched additional Boeing 747 freighter operations to Atlanta, Dubai and Hong Kong.
The all cargo airline’s third flight per week to Atlanta, which returns directly to London Stansted, is in addition to its existing 747 freighter flights from Stansted to Mexico City via Hartfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, which were launched last August. Its 2018 summer schedule also includes new twice-weekly direct services from Stansted to Dubai, continuing onto Hong Kong, and two direct Hong Kong-Stansted frequencies.
The expansion of its all cargo services to the US and Mexico will help to meet growing demand from customers shipping pharmaceuticals, aerospace products and automotive components on these routes. Ex Hong Kong, CargoLogicAir has also added much-needed maindeck cargo capacity for customers doing business on the UK’s biggest import tradelane, which is being further strengthened by significant growth in e-commerce volumes.
All services will also offer quick connections to Frankfurt and Europe.
David Kerr, CargoLogicAir’s CEO said: “We have a mandate to grow alongside strong demand from our customers in the UK and overseas for all cargo services to major cargo markets in the US, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. Our expansion plans include further additions to our fleet and network to satisfy the clear demand we are seeing for maindeck freighter services from and to the UK.”
