Air Canada Cargo freighters are being given a fresh look and the first newly painted Boeing 767F freighter has now rolled out of the paint shop.

The 767F features a black, white and red livery design first introduced in 2017.

The aircraft, registration C-GXHM, is one of two factory-built freighters delivered to Air Canada earlier this summer that will enter service in 2023, said Air Canada.

These are in addition to the eight converted 767 freighters that Air Canada Cargo will have in its fleet, two of which are already in service between North American, Europe and Latin America.  

Air Canada also recently announced the acquisition of two factory-built Boeing 777 freighters, which will enter service in 2024. 

“Seeing the livery come to life on one of our aircraft is a special moment for everyone at Air Canada, and especially for those of us in Cargo. Our fleet of freighters cover high-demand trade lanes globally while now proudly flying our brand. After so many months of hard work, we are excited for this important step signalling our strategic growth and can’t wait to see it in the sky soon,” said Jason Berry, vice president, Cargo at Air Canada.

The factory-built Boeing 767 freighter will offer four different maindeck configurations. The overall cargo capacity of the aircraft is nearly 58 tonnes or 438 cubic metres, with approximately 75% of this capacity on the main deck.

In addition to its maindeck space, the new aircraft features a temperature-controlled lower deck, with a large door in the back to allow for loading of pallets.

The addition of freighter aircraft to Air Canada’s fleet ensures that Air Canada Cargo can provide increased capability to transport goods such as automotive and aerospace parts, oil and gas equipment, pharmaceuticals and perishables, as well as handling the growing demand for fast, reliable shipment of e-commerce goods.
