Air Canada to boost Shanghai cargo flights to five times per week
Air Canada said Wednesday it plans to introduce a freighter service between Toronto and Calgary as it increases its Canada/China cargo flights from three to five times per week, effective June 20.
Earlier this month Air Canada launched all-cargo services between Toronto and Shanghai.
Air Canada said all flights between Toronto and Shanghai are planned for a night time departure from Toronto of 11:30 p.m., with four of the five flights per week transiting via Calgary.
“The new flights linking the Ontario and Alberta markets represent Canada’s first ever domestic widebody scheduled cargo service while the Calgary/Shanghai link will improve access from Alberta to the rapidly expanding Chinese market,” said Claude Morin, vice president cargo for Air Canada.
