CargoLogicAir has operated its first charter flights, sending automotive parts to Italy and fresh flowers from Kenya to the UK.
Its launch customer was Chapman Freeborn Italia, which it organised two Boeing 747-400 Freighter charters to Bari, Italy, via Frankfurt (Germany). The Bari flight carried a total of 113 tonnes of automotive parts, including engine base plates, which Chapman had booked on behalf of freight forwarder, Savino del Bene. CargoLogicAir operated two more charters for another customer from Nairobi to the UK, carrying over 200 tonnes of fresh flowers for St. Valentine’s Day.
Chapman Freeborn Italia director cargo, Enrico Fantini says: “We always welcome new and professional cargo airlines because they give us greater choice for our customers so we are proud to have been CargoLogicAir’s first customer. We wish the airline every success and look forward to working together again in the near future.”
CargoLogicAir chief executive officer, Dmitry Grishin says: “We are delighted to have commenced our flight operations and to have already earned the support of such a prestigious customer as Chapman Freeborn.”
“These flights have enabled us to demonstrate our operating capabilities for global charter services, which we will continue to offer even following the launch of our first scheduled services this month.”
