CLA committed to UK

UK-headquartered freighter airline, CargoLogicAir (CLA), has rebuffed media reports suggesting that it is planning to relocate its operations to Germany.

A report in the German media suggested that CLA would relocate its main hub from Stansted to Leipzig/Halle, citing concerns raised by its parent company Volga-Dnepr Group relating to post-Brexit EU market access. The report also suggested that CLA had applied to the Germany authorities for an air operator's certificate (AOC).

In response to the claim, David Kerr, ceo of CLA, said: "CLA remains totally committed to its British AOC and to supporting the UK Government's forward-looking aviation policy and the continued strong growth of the UK economy and our customers, as we reiterated only last month in our meeting with UK aviation minister Baroness Sugg.

"We will continue to be highly engaged in the UK Government consultation process with aviation interests around the EU exit. We achieved positive growth in 2017 in line with our five-year development strategy and will be continuing to invest in our fleet and network to support our UK-based business."

A separate media report has suggested that Volga-Dnepr is set to quit the Strategic Airlift Interim Solution (SALIS) contract that it shares with Antonov Airlines. This contract relates to the provision of airfreight capacity for EU and NATO countries. 

Volga-Dnepr has had one AN-124-100 freighter stationed at Leipzig/Halle airport since 2006, as part of the deal. Antonov SALIS, a subsidiary of Antonov Group, also positions one of its AN-124s at the gateway.
