Outsize and project cargo big business for CargoLogicAir

LONDON HEATHROW: January 29, 2019. CargoLogicAir (CLA) reports a 300 percent increase in Oil & Gas industry, Aerospace, Heavy Machinery and Humanitarian sector traffic last year that helped produce overall company revenue of US$200 million.

In late 2017, the airline began a twice-weekly scheduled service to Mexico City that included a stop in Houston (IAH). In December 2018 an associate company specializing in outsize cargo, Volga-Dnepr, opened an operations centre and has based one of its 12 AN-124-100 aircraft at the airport in response to demand for oil and gas-related shipments in the Americas.

Late last year also saw the arrival of CargoLogicAir’s fourth B747 freighter to support its scheduled cargo network and air charter services. Airline CEO David Kerr commented: “By investing in our business and putting in place a clear plan for sustainable growth, we will continue to develop our partnerships with clients across a wide range of sectors, including the aerospace, automotive and pharmaceutical industries.

“Naturally, we are closely monitoring the Brexit situation and staying close to our customers and other stakeholders to ensure we offer solutions which keep supply chains moving efficiently in the event of any border delays or disruption,” he added.
