July 09, 2021 Celebrating 10,000 Cargo-only Flights!
On Monday, July 5, flight AC7251 from Toronto (YYZ) to Buenos Aires (EZE) marked a significant milestone for Air Canada Cargo: the 10,00th cargo-only flight. The on-demand flight operated by a Boeing 789.
Since March 2020, Air Canada Cargo has operated both scheduled and on-demand cargo-only flights to ensure ongoing cargo capacity on important markets while passenger flying has been restricted due to
"Thinking back to when we began these flights and the sudden grounding of so many aircraft, we wouldn’t have guessed that we’d reach these kinds of numbers. It’s a credit to so many people not only at
Cargo but throughout Air Canada who responded quickly to the need for air freight capacity," said Matthieu Casey, Senior Director, Cargo Global Sales and Revenue Optimization.
To mark the occasion, Air Canada shared a video featuring Cargo employees speaking about what this remarkable milestone means to them. View the video and read the feature story in the Air Canada Media Center.
