In addition, the carrier’s second Boeing 767-300ER freighter will allow Air Canada Cargo to add freighter service to Frankfurt, Cologne, Istanbul, Madrid and St. John’s, starting in May.

“The entry into service of our second freighter is yet another exciting milestone in the growth of our freighter network and provides more options and services to the cargo community” says Matthieu Casey, managing director, commercial – cargo.

These new routes are in addition to Air Canada Cargo’s freighter service to Latin American cities.

Once the flights  begin, ACC will fly five times a week between Halifax and Toronto. Beginning on May 1, there will be six flights each week to St. John’s.

Also beginning in May the carrier will offer two cargo flights a week to Frankfurt, one each to Cologne and Instabul, and three to Madrid.
