The list posted by the LBA contains only active AOC. As an holder of an AOC you can request to have it pending. This saves costs. No aircraft or no intention to fly no active AOC required.

There's a rumor about the ACG owner. Isn't he a guy who bought 757 Condor fleet 5 years ago to start Russian VIM Airlines? I've already seen russian money in cargo business - that was Ocean Airlines!

Hi Folks, very interesting to start a Cargo Airline these times! What do you think they are going to transport!? Most of the major Cargo Airlines are loosing about 30 percent of there flying! Some big players are closing down the hole Operation ( Northwest), so my 50 cents, no way, not yet,

Thumbs up Patience

You can't hurry these things. All wil be revealed shortly. Everything is going according to plan. And if you think these are merely platitudes...just ask Gordon whilst you still have time

Don't forget that within a catchment area of a few hundred kilometers, ACG will also have to compete with Cargolux, Cargo B and TNT, not just German carriers.

I'm not saying it won't work (look at Cargo B, they are still in business, despite all doom and gloom predictions) but ACG is definitely going to be fighting an uphill battle.

I don't think you can compare "Integrators" (small packages) with heavy freight.

Exactly.

Anyway...my point was that there is competition out there and that they will be in for a rough ride.

AOC issued

Air Cargo Germany gets green light for launch.

It looks like they finally received their AOC and will commence operations soon.

Good luck to all at ACG!

Good news about ACG beginning flying ops today, best of luck to you all, perfect timing following the financial collapse of cargo b in brussels, I am sure you will avoid the mismanagement that plagued cargo b!!! Happy Landings

For now they trudging backwards and forwards to Tashkent along with everyone else. They will do all right as long as they avoid BRQ and remain flying out of HHN.
