Air Canada flies first Basel freighter


Air Canada Cargo’s first 767 freighter flight from Montreal to Basel touched down in Switzerland on 20 April. Connecting one of Europe’s premier pharmaceutical hubs to its North American network, the flights will operate twice per week.

Managing Director, commercial, Matthieu Casey, said: “We are excited to be returning to Basel, this time with our freighters, to serve a key market in Europe for pharmaceuticals. The capability of our freighters, combined with our temperature-controlled containers and cool chain facility at our Toronto global hub position us to serve this critical market with reliable, year-round service, and ensure these important shipments can move safely and in a timely manner throughout our global network.”
