CargoLogicAir celebrates growth

UK-based freighter airline CargoLogicAir (CLA) said that the amount of cargo it handled during 2018 increased by 36 percent year-on-year over 2017, and revenues reached USD200 million.

Last year, CLA also acquired its fourth freighter, a Boeing 747-400F, while tripling the volumes of oil and gas industry, aerospace, heavy machinery and humanitarian relief-related cargoes.

According to the freighter operator, it wants to continue to expand its fleet and aims to have five freighters operational by 2020.

David Kerr, CLA chief executive, added: "We will be looking to strengthen our team by recruiting more operations and engineering professionals, as well as additional and differing level flight crew.”

In 2018, the airline also moved its headquarters close to London Heathrow International Airport, whilst maintaining its operating base at London Stansted.
