Senior executives from CargoLogicAir have met with aviation minister, Baroness Sugg to emphasise the airlines commitment to UK aviation and boosting international trade.

The minister met with chief executive officer, David Kerr; chief commercial officer, Steve Harvey; technical director, John Nicholas and head of HR, Pamela Rablin during a visit to London Stansted Airport to see the benefits of airport competition and expansion.

During the meeting, the team highlighted how the airline’s growing network is helping UK companies in industries such as oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, aerospace, automotive and high tech products to boost international trade, and how CargoLogicAir is supporting demand for cargo capacity to satisfy e-commerce.

Baroness Sugg also heard how CargoLogicAir played a key role in delivering humanitarian aid from the UK to the Caribbean following Hurricane Irma, highlighting the value of British cargo aircraft capacity to meet fast response deadlines for life-saving relief goods after natural disasters around the world.

Kerr comments: “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.”

CargoLogicAir operated its first flight in 2016 and now operates services connecting the UK with Atlanta, Mexico City, Houston, Frankfurt, Dubai, Tel Aviv and Hong Kong in addition to providing ACMI capacity and charter services.

The airline employs 200 personnel and operates three Boeing 747 Freighters, including the 747-8F.
