Britain-based One Air caters to ME, Europe, Asia

One Air has dry leased its first Boeing 747 freighter, with plans to add a second B747F during this year. One Air expects initial demand for flights from the United Kingdom to Europe, the Middle East and Asia. It intends to offer freighter services to China and the USA in the future. One Air is majority-owned by CEO Paul Bennett, who said, “The important role freighter services played in supporting the UK economy demonstrated the level of demand which exists for a British cargo airline. We are proud to be meeting this need and to have the opportunity to leverage longstanding business relationships with freight forwarders, logistics providers, and charter brokers serving the UK market. We expect to add our second B747F later this year and have the financial resources to grow in line with the level of demand we see.” The airline will review its fleet plans, including the potential for other aircraft types, later in the year. Chris Hope who joined the board of One Air as COO and accountable manager, said, “Over the past two years, the cargo market in the UK has clearly shown resilience in the face of unprecedented disruption to the aviation industry. Now the industry is entering a new phase of recovery and growth and we look forward to being at the heart of this.”
