Prestwick Airport gets new twice weekly cargo flights between Texas and Germany

New freight services connecting Glasgow Prestwick Airport to Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Frankfurt Airport have been launched.

The new twice-weekly services using Boeing 747 aircraft will help customers in sectors including energy and aerospace to transport very large or heavy items.


The services, which are run by Heathrow-based CargoLogicAir, each offer 110 tonnes of freight capacity.

Stewart Adams, chief executive at Glasgow Prestwick Airport, said: “With two weekly services carrying up to 110 tonnes, this is a tremendous addition to our extensive freight handling offering – a key part of the airport’s overall commercial strategy.

“CargoLogicAir has ambitious expansion plans and utilising the services of Prestwick Airport’s heavy-lift infrastructure, we’re excited to develop this partnership in support of its global operation.”


Prestwick Airport’s freight handling operation grew last year, capitalising on opportunities presented by Scotland’s buoyant energy and aerospace industries. The airport specialises in dedicated freight services and it regularly handles large and outsized cargo.
