CLA adds fourth Boeing

CargoLogicAir (CLA) has taken delivery of its fourth Boeing 747 freighter. 

 

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 US routes. 

The delivery is part of CLA’s five-year growth strategy, which is based on the airline operating a fleet of five freighters by 2020. 

David Kerr, ceo of CLA, 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.”

Kerr added that the airline expects to be adding new destinations to its network in the first quarter of next year. 

CLA’s current network is designed to support customers in industry sectors that require scheduled main deck cargo services, including oil and gas shipments to Houston and the UAE; pharmaceutical, aerospace and automotive cargoes to Altanta; as well e-commerce markets in Hong Kong. 

The airline also handles regular shipments of oversized cargoes and provides charter operations to deliver humanitarian aid.
