AC Cargo adding five new stops

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

MONTREAL – Air Canada Cargo is adding five new destinations in Europe and South America beginning June 1.

Pending government approval the carrier will begin serving Bogota, Lima, Amsterdam, Dublin, and Madrid. The nonstop flights will originate from Montreal to Europe and South America.

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.
