Freight Air Canada Cargo and Cargojet to end cooperation by end of 2017
- Cargo Jet
The cooperation agreement between Air Canada Cargo and Cargojet will expire at the end of 2017. As a consequence, the dedicated freighter service from Toronto to Mexico, Dallas-Fort Worth, Atlanta, Bogota, Lima and Frankfurt will be terminated.
Since April 2016 Cargojet operated a Boeing 767-300F aircraft on behalf of Air Canada Cargo.
Air Canada Cargo will, however, still offer cargo capacities to these destinations by using the belly capacity of its wide-body passenger aircraft fleet. In addition to that, the airline will add a daily 767 passenger flight between Canada and Mexico and three additional weekly frequencies between Canada and Lima in 2018.
Moreover, Air Canada Cargo stated that it will continue to offer extensive trucking network facilitating connections to widebody flights out of US cities like Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Newark and connections to widebody flights out of Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal.
Air Canada is a Canadian Airline with a mixed fleet of currently 170 aircraft. It is member of the Star Alliance and has its home-base in Montréal, Canada. Cargojet is a Canadian freight airline, which was founded in 2002. The airline currently operates a fleet of 23 aircraft of the types ATR42, Boeing 727, 757 and 767.
