Freight Volga-Dnepr reveals details about new German cargo carrier
The Russian cargo specialist Volga-Dnepr Airlines is planning to establish a new German cargo airline.
In an interview with CargoForwarder Global, Ulrich Ogiermann, Senior VP Operations of CargoLogicManagement, announced the new airline is currently applying for a German AOC (Airline Operations Certificate) from the German civil aviation authority (Luftfahrt-Bundesamt). The manager does not expect any major obstacles in the application process. The new airline will not be part of Volga-Dnepr Group but will become a separate legal German entity.
After the successful application for the German AOC, CargoLogic Germany will operate a fleet of three leased Boeing 737-400 Freighters. The aircraft will be used for cargo freights from the new hub Leipzig-Halle Airport. According to Ulrich Ogiermann, the airline will focus on the growing e-commerce business at the German major freight hub.
The manager has not announced a specific date for the launch of operations of CargoLogic Germany.
Leipzig-Halle Airport is Germany’s second-busiest and Europe’s fifth-busiest airport in terms of cargo traffic. The airport has handled over 1.138 metric tons of cargo in 2017. The airport is DHL Aviation’s major European hub and a main hub for the Lufthansa Cargo and DHL joint-venture AeroLogic.
