Britain’s only all-cargo airline has launched its first scheduled service with a twice-weekly route form the UK to Mexico.

The inaugural flight is to take off on August 19, 2017, providing maindeck services connecting the UK and Mexico.

All flights will depart from CLA’s base at London Stansted airport every Wednesday and Saturday, using Boeing 747-400s. Flights will operate to Mexico City International airport via Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International airport in the US.

The full aircraft routing includes Houston, Frankfurt and Abu Dhabi giving a number of Europe-Mexico, Europe-Middle East and US-Middle East connections. Over Frankfurt, CLA will link up with the global network of its partner airline, AirBridgeCargo, enabling it to offer onward connections to the APAC region.

CargoLogicAir will offer a total cargo capacity of over 200 tonnes a week on its new routes and has appointed AEROCHARTER as its GSA partner in Mexico, AirCargoAmericas in the US and AirFreightLogistics in Europe.

The launch of its first scheduled route follows the delivery of its third Boeing 747 freighter in May this year. The airline has reported strong customer demand in the first half of 2017 with its ACMI and charter operations growing 44% year-on-year.

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."
