On Tuesday (August 2, 2022), the Board of Airline Representatives in Germany (BARIG) announced the organization’s continued involvement with Air Cargo Community Frankfurt (ACCF). At ACCF’s general assembly on July 26, 2022, BARIG’s Chairman and Executive Director Michael Hoppe was re-elected for the Executive Board for the ‘Airlines’ segment. Mr. Hoppe represents the interests of over 100 domestic and international passenger and cargo airlines operating in Germany. He is also a founding team member of ACCF and has been engaged in the community since 2014. With Michael Hoppe’s re-election, BARIG continues their commitment to the air cargo industry, and supports further development of important cargo and logistics topics.


In Tuesday’s announcement, BARIG’s Chairman and Executive Director, Michael Hoppe, said,


“Active involvement in the ACCF is of great importance to us. Within the whole cargo community, we need to work together in order to address now effectively the contemporary lack of resources and disruptions in logistics processes and supply chains. Our BARIG member airlines aim to drive forward important cargo-related topics and, as part of the Executive Board, we need to further advance and stabilize operations in Frankfurt, Germany, and the world.”


Cooperation between cargo stakeholders has never been more important, especially considering the current bottlenecks in airport operations and handling services, as well as supply chain challenges. The air cargo and logistics industry has demonstrated its central, system-critical significance in global economies, and needs to be further optimized and improved.

ACCF includes freight forwarders, cargo handling companies, airlines, and various other service providers along the entire air cargo process chain at Frankfurt Airport and beyond. The organization’s overall goal is to keep, develop and strengthen Frankfurt’s position as one of the leading cargo hubs, not only in Europe, but also globally.


Founded in 1951, Frankfurt am Main-based BARIG (Board of Airline Representatives in Germany e.V.) represents over 100 national and international airlines in the scheduled, charter, low cost and air cargo sectors. The association works to improve conditions in the aviation industry in Germany and is the key industry contact for politics, authorities, industry and media.
