LONDON STANSTED: April 26, 2018. UK-registered all-cargo airline CargoLogicAir (CLA) has added a roundtrip 747 freighter service to Atlanta following the launch last August of twice-weekly flights from Stansted to Mexico City via the city.

The company says the extra capacity is in response to demand from shippers of pharmaceuticals, aerospace products and automotive components.

UK Aviation Minister Baroness Sugg and David Kerr CEO of CargoLogicAir 456x257CLA will also add Dubai and Hong Kong to Its 2018 summer schedule with a twice-weekly direct service from Stansted to Dubai and on to Hong Kong with a direct return to the UK - in competition with IAG Cargo that recently completed 1,000 flights to and from Hong Kong using Qatar Airways’ B777 freighter capacity.

CLA chief executive David Kerr commented: “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 U.S, 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.”

Prior to a meeting this month between the UK government and representatives of the aviation industry to clarify a post-Brexit policy, Kerr met with UK Aviation minister Baroness Sugg (pictured) to emphasise the airline’s commitment: “We are very upbeat about the UK’s growth prospects and continue to invest in building a team, fleet and network ready to support a very positive future for British business in the global market.

“CLA is ready to support government and industry initiatives to bolster trade links through the provision of reliable, high quality air cargo services,” he added.

In addition to the newly announced increase in schedule services, CargoLogicAir also operates to Houston, Frankfurt and Tel Aviv and provides ACMI capacity and charter services with its B747-8 and two B747-400 freighters.
