CargoLogicAir (CLA), the UK’s only maindeck
cargo airline, has taken delivery of its fourth Boeing 747
The latest 747-400ERF joins the airline’s
fleet on an operating lease and will initially be used to meet
customer demand on CLA’s U.S. routes.
The delivery also keeps CLA on track with its
five-year growth strategy, which is based on the airline operating
a fleet of five freighters by 2020.
David Kerr, CEO of CargoLogicAir, said, “2018
has been our busiest year of operations so far with volumes and
revenues doubling in the first nine months compared to last year.
The delivery of our fourth 747F will enable us to meet peak season
demand, especially in our core US market, and increase our options
in terms of frequencies and new routes as we head into 2019. We
are continuing to consult with our customers to identify where
they need maindeck cargo capacity and expect to be adding new
destinations to our network in the first quarter of next year.”
CargoLogicAir’s fleet now consists of
three Boeing 747-400 freighters and one 747-8F offering a payload
capacity of up to 139 tonnes as well as nose and side-door loading
