Air Canada Cargo has operated its first commercial freighter flight into Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

The service uses a Boeing 767 freighter and will be operated once a week.

“We are excited to add yet another destination to our expanding freighter network. This new service builds upon our capabilities to serve the island through Air Canada’s passenger network, providing consistent year-round cargo capacity for our key customers in the region,” said Jon Turner, vice president, cargo at Air Canada.

“We are pleased to welcome the first freighter flight from Air Canada Cargo. As winners of the Airports Council’s International Airport Service Quality Awards for seven consecutive years, we are confident that this will contribute to the excellence and diversification of our cargo operations,” added Giovanni Rainieri, director of airside operations at Punta Cana International Airport.

Air Canada Cargo’s flight to Punta Cana is the latest addition to its worldwide freighter network, following recently launched freighter services to San José, Costa Rica; Basel, Switzerland; Liege, Belgium; Dallas, US; Atlanta, US; and Bogota, Colombia.

Earlier this month, the carrier took delivery of two newbuild 767-300Fs.
