Air Canada Cargo is to expand its freighter network, with flights from Toronto to Halifax starting April 19 and services from Toronto to Frankfurt, Cologne, Istanbul, Madrid and St. John’s, from in May. It will follow the entry into service of the carrier’s second Boeing 767-300ER freighter aircraft.
The carrier put its first dedicated Boeing 767-300ER freighter aircraft into service on 9 December. The initial plan was to operate to Frankfurt but the new plane was pressed into service to move cargo from Toronto to Vancouver to relieve flood-hit British Columbia.
Cargo commercial managing director, Matthieu Casey, said: “The entry into service of our second freighter is yet another exciting milestone in the growth of our freighter network and provides more options and services to the cargo community.”
