May 2013: One favorite subject of conversation at air freight industry get-togethers these days is the demise of the all-cargo long-haul airline. Whenever another all-cargo carrier goes out of business (Air Cargo Germany (ACG) is the latest) someone is sure to say: “When even the big players like Cargolux (CLX), Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA), and AirBridge (ABC) are losing money, there’s no hope for the little guys.” But that has not deterred two recent start-ups – one in Europe and one in the USA.

In the USA, Western Global Airlines (WGA) has applied to the Department of Transport (DOT) for authority to operate in both domestic and international service, while in Europe, Aerospace One (registered in Greece) claims to have already begun operations from a base in Châteauroux (France). The two share some interesting similarities: both have been launched by industry veterans who already run other all-cargo airlines, both plan to operate in the charter and wet-lease (ACMI) markets, rather than in scheduled service, and both plan to start operations with a single freighter. We start with Western Global Airlines (WGA).

Management:
(definitions)

JAMES K NEFF, FOUNDER, CHAIRMAN, PRESIDENT & CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (CEO), WESTERN GLOBAL HOLDINGSEX-SOUTHERN AIR (SOF) (1999 - 2010), FLYING TIGER AIRLINES, CONTINENTAL AIRLINES (CAL), EMERY WORLDWIDE (EAF), & BURLINGTON AIR EXPRESS (BNA).
Founder and (CEO), Jim Neff, said, “As the first newly certified USA based wide body air cargo operator in almost a decade, (WGA) offers the global marketplace, a new large-scale, customer-oriented platform, focused on low cost, flexible service and high reliability. We also expect to benefit from the relative shortage of wide body cargo carriers in the market today.” In addition to being (WGA)’s (CEO), Jim also serves as Chairman and (CEO) of Helsinki based, Nordic Global Airlines, Ltd (NGB) and has had an unparalleled career in air cargo and aviation dating back to Flying Tiger Line, Continental Airlines (CAL), Emery Worldwide (EMC) and Burlington Air Express (BNA). He was the Founder and (CEO) of Southern Air (SOF) from 1999 until 2010.

Western Global Airlines (WGA) is Jim Neff’s masterpiece, the culmination of a lifetime of accomplishments and contributions in the air cargo and aviation industries, which commenced upon his graduation from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering.

Jim added, “For me, this is the culmination of a lifelong dream. Having created and built the air systems for many of the leading USA based cargo operators over the past 30 plus years, I believe that the current global economic reality calls for freighter services to be both lower cost and more responsive to customers. This is the driving force and the vision behind (WGA).”

(WGA)’s management team was hand-picked by Jim from among the industry’s most knowledgeable and experienced innovators. (WGA) will began operations with a fleet of MD-11Fs leased from Neff Air LLC, an affiliated leasing company which owns ten (GE) powered MD-11Fs and two (GE) powered 747-400BCFs directly without debt. (WGA)’s business plan is based on enabling its customers to profitably grow their air cargo business, by seamlessly outsourcing all or part of their freighter operation to (WGA). (WGA)’s sister company, Nordic Global Airlines, Ltd (NGB), has been providing low cost, flexible, and reliable service to the European market for the past three years with a fleet of five MD-11Fs leased from Neff Air. Going forward, the company expects to develop the (WGA)/(NGB) platforms jointly to achieve marketing and operational synergies to maximize service responsiveness, flexibility, and operating efficiencies.

MS CARMIT NEFF, CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER (CFO).
