Air Canada Cargo gets its First Freighter

  • Posted on December 07, 2021

The first of eight dedicated freighters is here and will soon commence regular cargo flying, providing additional capacity to key destinations in Europe and the Americas. This aircraft will initially support the shipping community during the busy peak season.

Converting Boeing 767-300ER passenger aircraft to freighters allows Air Canada Cargo to offer five different main deck configurations, increasing the overall capacity of each aircraft to over 57 tonnes (or 438 cubic metres), with approximately 75 per cent of this capacity on the main deck.

With approximately 75% of this capacity being on the main deck, the expanded doors allow us to effectively load full-sized pallets and containers, and each compartment is designed for appropriate temperature control to handle specialized and perishable commodities or any of the other Air Canada Cargo shipping solutions.
