CargoLogic Germany, a cargo airline that is in the process of being established, is now a member of the Board of Airline Representatives in Germany (BARIG). The association, based at Frankfurt Main Airport, represents the interest of more than 120 airlines to airport operators, politicians, authorities and other institutions.

BARIG Secretary General Michael Hoppe commented: “Air cargo and logistics topics are traditionally an important aspect of BARIG’s association work, and it has gained momentum in the past few years. We are therefore happy to welcome CargoLogic Germany, which will also be part of our Cargo Committee, as new player with possibly new business approaches in our industry.”

CargoLogic Germany was registered as a company name last year and applied to the German Federal Aviation Authority for an operating permit and Air Operator Certificate (AOC). Its home base is Leipzig/Halle Airport (IATA: LEJ). It currently has a fleet of three Boeing 737 freighters which will serve destinations in Europe and beyond as soon as the operating license is granted by the German Federal Aviation Authority.

The carrier’s managing director, Ulrich Ogiermann, explained: “CargoLogic Germany will operate in the express freight sector. For this reason, the competent representation available through BARIG regarding many important issues is of special interest to us.”
