German civil aviation authority grants AOC to Cargologic Germany
Sep 16, 2019: Following months of hard and dedicated work, Cargologic Germany GmbH (CLG) has been granted an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) from the German civil aviation authority (LBA).
The airline, whose home base is Leipzig/Halle Airport, is set to commence commercial operations.
It has generated considerable commercial interest in recent months following the granting of its non-commercial permit to fly in June 2019.
The airline will initially focus on providing short-term capacity to customers across Europe.
With time, it aims expand its offering to include provision of express air cargo solutions to leading integrators and e-commerce providers as well.
CLG currently operates a fleet of two B737-400SF aircraft, a type well-suited to the European express air cargo market.
It plans to eventually operate a fleet of 10 B737 freighters by 2022, to serve the fast-growing European air cargo market.
The cargo airline is a member of the Frankfurt airport-based association,
Board of Airline Representatives in Germany eV (BARIG).
