CargoLogic Germany (GCL, Leipzig/Halle) has secured an Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) from the German civil aviation authority (Luftfahrt-Bundesamt) and is ready to start commercial operations focusing initially on short-term ACMI services, the airline said in a press release.

CargoLogic Germany, a subsidiary of CargoLogicAir (P3, London Stansted), is ready to proffer two B737-400(F)s to the cargo market. The two converted Boeing narrowbodies are 22.5 years of age on average and are both dry-leased from Vx Capital Partners. One unit, D-ACLG (msn 28867), was used for flight testing, while the other aircraft, D-ACLO (msn 27673), is in storage at Leipzig/Halle.

The German cargo specialist intends to expand its fleet as it readies to offer express air cargo solutions to integrators and e-commerce firms.

"The airline has generated considerable commercial interest in recent months following the granting of its non-commercial permit to fly in June 2019 and CLG is committed to plans that will increase its fleet to ten B737 aircraft by 2022," the airline said.

The carrier's British parent operates three B747-400(F)s and one B747-8(F), the ch-aviation fleets advanced module shows.
