Cargo Air Line Starts New UK

CLA Utilising New 747-8 to the FullShipping News Feature UK – Dedicated freight airline CargoLogicAir (CLA[1]) has launched its second new scheduled cargo service with a new weekly route connecting London and Frankfurt with Dubai and Hong Kong. Departing from London every Saturday, CLA’s new Boeing 747-8 Freighter will offer customers 135 tonnes of cargo capacity per week from Europe to the Middle East and Hong Kong, and a direct Hong Kong-London Stansted service which arrives back into the UK every Monday.

This latest new routes follows the launch of CargoLogicAir’s first scheduled operation in August[2], when the airline introduced twice-weekly Boeing 747-400 flights from Stansted Airport every Wednesday and Saturday to Mexico City International Airport via Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. This service also incorporates stops in Houston, Frankfurt and Abu Dhabi, enabling CLA to also offer customers a wide choice of Europe-Mexico, Europe-Middle East and U.S.-Middle East connections.

Steve Harvey, Chief Commercial Officer of CargoLogicAir, said:

“We have always been extremely positive about the demand for a British cargo airline and the strength of the UK export and import markets, and this is being proven by the level of support we are receiving, particularly from multi-national freight forwarders.

Our UK-Mexico service has exceeded our expectations in terms of its operational and commercial performance to the extent that we are now looking to add a third weekly frequency on the route in early 2018 to support the level of business investment and market growth in Mexico.”
