On June 18 Chapman Freeborn signed an agreement to acquire Arcus Air Logistics and Arcus Air OBC from the Arcus Air Group.

Offering ad hoc air cargo charter and on board courier services, primarily to the automotive industry, Arcus Air Logistics is a respected and established supplier with a brand history of over 45 years.

The company provides cargo charter services with its own fleet of two Dornier 228-212 aircraft, alongside a variety of additional aircraft. Over the 2015-2019 period, Arcus Air Logistics’ average annual sales were €22m.

The two entities are seen as a valuable addition to Chapman Freeborn’s service portfolio since they will bring significant synergies in the emergency cargo logistics space where Chapman Freeborn has ambitious plans for future growth.
