Air Canada Cargo will add freighter flights to the US, while also expanding its network to Latin America.

The carrier said that starting in November it will add B767 freighter flights to Dallas and Atlanta.

Air Canada Cargo is also expanding its presence in Latin America with a service to Bogota.

“The addition of these key US markets is a significant milestone for Air Canada Cargo and allows Air Canada Cargo to provide dedicated, reliable service to customers in key markets, and allowing easy connection to other markets through our global hub in Toronto,” the carrier said.

Matthieu Casey, managing director, commercial, Air Canada Cargo, said: “These additional routes allow us to expand the reach of our freighter network to key US markets, and conveniently connect cargo in the US to Canada, Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific with our freighter service.

“The additional growth of our freighter fleet allows us to continue to expand to better serve our global customers and we remain committed to supporting global economies and supply chains with reliable transportation moving critical goods.”

Air Canada is in the process of converting eight of its B767 aircraft into freighters, while it has also ordered two factory built B767-300Fs that will enter service in 2023.
In addition, the airline will take delivery of two B777Fs in 2024.

Last week, Air Canada Cargo announced the launch of a five-times-a-week B767 freighter service from St. John’s (YYT) to Frankfurt and Madrid.
