CargoLogicAir launches first scheduled cargo service


CargoLogicAir is to launch its first scheduled cargo route with flights to Mexico City from 19 August.

The twice-weekly Boeing 747-400 route will depart from its London Stansted Airport base every Wednesday and Saturday, flying to Mexico City International Airport via Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The airline will offer over 200 tonnes of cargo capacity a week on its new routes, and has appointed Aerocharter as its general sales agent partner in Mexico, AirCargoAmericas in the US and AirFreightLogistics in Europe.

CargoLogicAir chief executive officer, Dmitry Grishin says: “The arrival of our third 747 freighter means we are ready to begin our scheduled cargo operations and we are confident the routing we have chosen will appeal strongly to customers moving car spares, hi-tech, energy, aerospace and healthcare products.”

Chief operating officer, Sten Rossby adds: “Our growing air charter and ACMI operations have enabled us to establish the quality and reliability of our services and this has also helped us to already achieve a high level of customer commitments to support our first scheduled operation.”

The full routing, which sees AirBridgeCargo Boeing 747s operating via Houston, Frankfurt and Abu Dhabi enables CargoLogicAir to offer customers a wide choice of Europe-Mexico, Europe-Middle East and US-Middle East connections.

CargoLogicAir is providing road feeder services across the Middle East to offer customers fast deliveries to Dubai International Airport, Dubai World Central and Sharjah International Airport.

It will also link up with the global network of AirBridgeCargo in Frankfurt, enabling onward connections to Asia Pacific.
