CargoLogicAir takes delivery of its first Boeing 747-8 freighter
July 14, 2016: CargoLogicAir, the new British cargo airline, has taken delivery of its first Boeing 747-8 freighter at the Farnborough International Airshow 2016.
London Stansted Airport-based CargoLogicAir received its UK Air Operator Certificate at the start of 2016 and in February commenced twice-weekly Boeing 747-400 ACMI services connecting the UK, Europe and Africa as well as air charter services.
The arrival of its second 747 will see the development of its network into North and South America later this year.
The airline’s growth strategy is based on operating a fleet of five Boeing 747 freighters within its first five years of operations.
“The -8F is a remarkable aircraft capable of carrying virtually any cargo from temperature-sensitive fresh produce and pharmaceuticals to long aerospace and oil & gas cargoes through its nose door. It is a highly efficient aircraft and offers us a 16 percent increase in payload over our 747-400, increasing our capacity on a single flight to 137 tonnes,” said Dmitry Grishin, chief executive officer, CargoLogicAir.
