Air Canada’s vice president of inflight services will replace Jason Berry in the role of vice president, cargo from February 18.

Turner has held a wide range of senior leadership roles at Air Canada and other Canadian airlines.

These have included vice president, maintenance and engineering, with responsibility for all aspects of Air Canada’s aircraft acquisition, fleet management, global aircraft maintenance programmes and airworthiness.

He also served as president and chief executive at Sky Regional, a Canadian airline that operated flights under the Air Canada Express brand, and prior to this as executive vice president at Air Transat.

Turner became president, Rouge Operations in June 2019, with oversight for all aspects of leisure carrier Air Canada Rouge and its distinct brand and culture.

He subsequently assumed leadership of Air Canada’s inflight service branch of more than 9,000 inflight brand ambassadors.

With three dedicated Boeing 767 freighters now in the fleet and seven more on the way, plus two Boeing 777 freighters due for delivery in 2024, Turner will have oversight for leading the strategic direction of Air Canada Cargo’s global business as well as operationalising commercial cargo opportunities to sustainably optimise Air Canada’s long-term business objectives.
