CargoLogicAir Awarded AOC by UKs Civil Aviation Authority

CargoLogicAir (CLA), the new British all-cargo airline, has been awarded an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) by the UKs Civil Aviation Authority.

Headquartered at Londons Stansted Airport, CargoLogicAir plans to offer cargo services on scheduled and charter flights with Europe.

Dmitry Grishin, formerly Vice President Sales at Ruslan International, is the newly-appointed Chief Executive Officer of CargoLogicAir. He is joined by Peter van de Pas in the role of Chief Operating Officer & Accountable Manager, who previously held senior positions at KLM and Cargolux. Steve Harvey is CLAs Chief Commercial Officer having joined the airline from his previous post of Regional Charter Sales Manager EMEA of Atlas Air.

CargoLogicAir has already taken delivery of its first Boeing 747-400 Freighter from Air Castle and will add a second 747F to its fleet in July 2016. CLA expects to have a fleet of five Boeing 747Fs by April 2018.

Steve Harvey, CargoLogicAirs Chief Commercial Officer, said, We believe this is the right time to launch a new UK cargo airline. We created the company in the UK, which has a rich heritage of all-cargo specialist carriers including big names like HeavyLift, AirFoyle and others. The UK is the second largest air cargo market in the EU and its economy is growing. Using our knowledge, we plan to make a strong contribution to putting the UK back on the map of global all-cargo leaders. We have been extremely encouraged by the level of interest from our customers and expect this to result in us attracting the level of business we need to support our growth strategy over the next 3-5 years.

Route plans have not yet been unveiled.
