CargoLogic Germany has taken delivery of its first Boeing 737F which landed yesterday (17 January) at Leipzig/Halle Airport.
Managing director, Ulrich Ogiermann and Dierk Nather, accountable manager for the carrier and airport management, were on hand to welcome the freighter’s arrival.
CargoLogic Germany is set to start operating three Boeing 737Fs from Leipzig/Halle in 2019, primarily transport express shipments once it has obtained its air operating certificate (AOC) from the Federal Aviation Office.
The carrier has though set its sights on expansion and is aiming to grow its fleet to 10 freighter aircraft within the next three years.
Ogiermann said: “The arrival of the first plane at its future home base is an important milestone along our journey of launching flight operations here at Leipzig/Halle Airport during the spring this year.
“All the measures required for this from both organisational and operational points of view are proceeding at full speed. We’re therefore involved in a constructive dialogue with the Federal Aviation Office in this regard.”
