Air Canada’s freight division, Air Canada Cargo has announced an expansion of its cargo-only network with the addition of five new destinations in Europe and South America beginning June 1.
“Beginning June 1, five new destinations will be added to an already robust cargo-only network: Bogota, Lima, Amsterdam, Dublin, and Madrid. These nonstop flights originating from Montreal to Europe and South America will enhance our global connectivity, allowing us to continue supporting the global supply chain and our freight forwarding customers,” said Tim Strauss, vice-president, Cargo at Air Canada.
In addition to the hundreds of tonnes of medical equipment, PPE, pharmaceuticals and consumer goods that Air Canada Cargo transports globally directly to Canada, it also provides vital global supply links to keep world economies moving by connecting goods from international destinations via Canada such as from South America to Asia via Canada or Europe to the U.S. via Canada. Air Canada Cargo has recently transported thousands of queen honeybees across Canada to aid in crop pollination, fresh flowers from Amsterdam and Israel to Canadian merchants for Mother’s Day, chilled beef from Australia destined for Canadian supermarkets, and Atlantic lobster from Canada to Asia and to Europe.
Air Canada Cargo has operated more than 1,200 cargo-only flights since the end of March. Air Canada and Air Canada Cargo will continue to evaluate the opportunity to add additional all-cargo flights.
