Air Canada launches freighter routes


Air Canada Cargo operated the first of its twice-weekly 767 freighter flights into San José, Costa Rica, on 19 May. They are the latest addition to the carrier’s worldwide freighter network, following recently launched freighter services to Basel, Liege, Dallas, Atlanta and Bogota.

Vice president, cargo, Jon Turner, said: “The start of our freighter operations into Costa Rica builds upon Air Canada’s passenger service to the country and bolsters the cargo presence to offer consistent year-round capacity for our key customers in the region.”

The carrier has also operated its first weekly B767F freighter flight into Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
