August 9 - CargoLogicAir (CLA) will launch its first scheduled cargo route on August 19, providing maindeck services connecting the UK and Mexico.

Twice-weekly Boeing 747-400 flights will depart from CLA's base at London Stansted Airport every Wednesday and Saturday. Flights will operate to Mexico City International Airport via Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, USA.

The launch of CLA'S first scheduled route follows the delivery of its third Boeing 747 freighter in May 2017.

Dmitry Grishin, ceo of CargoLogicAir, said: "The arrival of our third 747 freighter means we are ready to begin our scheduled cargo operations and we are confident the routing we have chosen will appeal strongly to customers moving car spares, hi-tech, energy, aerospace and healthcare products."

The full aircraft routing includes Houston, USA; Frankfurt, Germany; and Abu Dhabi, UAE. This enables CLA to offer customers a choice of Europe-Mexico, Europe-Middle East, and US-Middle East connections.

In Frankfurt, the service will also link up with the global network of its partner airline, AirBridgeCargo, enabling CLA to offer onward connections to the Asia Pacific region.

In the Middle East, CLA is providing road feeder services to also offer customers fast deliveries to Dubai International Airport (DXB), Dubai World Central (DWC) and Sharjah (SHJ).

CLA, which will offer a total cargo capacity of over 200 tonnes a week on its new routes, has appointed Aerocharter as its general sales agent (GSA) in Mexico, AirCargoAmericas in the USA and AirFreightLogistics in Europe.
