CargoLogicAir heads down Mexico way with first scheduled service

[ August 9, 2017   //   ]

UK-based freighter operator CargoLogicAir (CLA) has chosen Mexico city as the destination for first scheduled cargo route on 19 August.

The twice-weekly Boeing 747-400 flights will operate from Stansted on Wednesday and Saturday to Mexico City Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in the US. The full routing of the aircraft also takes in Houston, Frankfurt and Abu Dhabi.

The carrier has appointed Aerocharter as its general sales agent in Mexico.

Since gaining its Air Operator Certificate from the UK Civil Aviation Authority in 2016, CLA has been operating charter services and its first scheduled route follows the delivery of its third Boeing 747 freighter in May.

CLA chief executive, Dmitry Grishin, 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.”
