British cargo carrier CargoLogicAir has added another scheduled route to its network as it continues to grow.
The new route links London with Hong Kong, operating once weekly on Saturdays, returning on Mondays, out of Stansted Airport.
Offering 135 tonnes of cargo capacity each week, the new service stops in Frankfurt and Dubai on the way, adding more flexibility for customers. It is operated by the airline’s own Boeing 747-8 freighter.
To date CargoLogicAir has acquired three aircraft – two 747-400s and one 747-8, with a fourth aircraft due in early 2018.
It launched scheduled services in August, linking London Stansted with Mexico City via Atlanta and offering additional stops in Abu Dhabi, Frankfurt and Houston.
Steve Harvey, Chief Commercial Officer of CargoLogicAir, said: “We have always been extremely positive about the demand for a British cargo airline and the strength of the UK export and import markets, and this is being proven by the level of support we are receiving, particularly from multi-national freight forwarders. Our UK-Mexico service has exceeded our expectations in terms of its operational and commercial performance to the extent that we are now looking to add a third weekly frequency on the route in early 2018 to support the level of business investment and market growth in Mexico.”
