ASL Airlines to start UK cargo subsidiary between East Midlands and Belfast International airports


ASL Airlines flew its first cargo flight with an ATR 72-200 turboprop freighter recently. It is the first carrier to receive an air operator certificate from the United Kingdom’s Civil Aviation Authority since Brexit.

ASL Aviation Holdings, which operates four for-hire cargo airlines in Europe, said in a statement that the new subsidiary will operate daily between East Midlands Airport and Belfast International Airport in Northern Ireland.

The company eventually plans to fly to the European Union too, says reports.

ASL UK will be closely aligned with ASL Airlines Ireland, with shared procedures and support services to maximise efficiency.

“The launch of ASL Airlines UK further strengthens our customer offering as a leading global aviation services provider,” ASL Aviation Holdings CEO Dave Andrew said in a statement. “We will continue to explore opportunities to grow by offering all customers, new and old, a neutral service with the agility to deliver, develop and grow according to their requirements.”
