Air Canada increases cargo capacity in Vancouver
To support increased demand for air cargo, Air Canada is increasing its capacity to Vancouver by 586 tonnes. British Columbia is experiencing one of its biggest natural disasters and the country is responding to help.
As many roads are cut, air transport becomes an essential link to transport basic foodstuffs. To match demand, Air Canada will increase its cargo capacity from Montreal, Toronto and Calgary. From 21 to 30 November, it will replace single-aisle aircraft performing regular flights with large carriers. B787, B777 and A330-300 will then be used to replace single-aisle aircraft on 28 flights. This change will move 282 tonnes of additional cargo.
In addition, Air Canada will operate 13 additional flights with wide-body aircraft configured as all cargo. Departures will again be from Montreal, Toronto and Calgary adding 302 tonnes. Finally, in collaboration with Jazz, the company will assign a full cargo Q400 to the province.>>> Follow us on Facebook and Twitter
