GlobalX gears up Canada operations

Global Crossing Airlines Group (GlobalX) is strengthening its operations to Canada.

The carrier has amended its Foreign Air Operators Certificate (FAOC) issued by Transport Canada.

The Amended Canadian FAOC adds the number of, and type of, aircraft GlobalX can provide as part of its charter and ACMI offering into Canada from the US, including operating on behalf of existing Canadian airlines.

GlobalX also recently reached an agreement to lease an additional A321 Passenger to Freighter (P2F) aircraft for delivery in December this year.

The carrier received approval from the US Federal Aviation Administration for cargo operations in February and commenced flights with its first A321P2F aircraft in the same month.

Previously a passenger ACMI and charter airline, Miami-based GlobalX plans on acquiring 25 freighters in total, which will equal the number of passenger charter aircraft in its fleet.

“We greatly appreciate the support provided to us by Transport Canada during our approval process. Canada will become an increasingly important market for us and we continue to provide additional aircraft capacity to Canadian airlines during their peak seasons, as well as to provide aircraft for operational reasons,” said Ed Wegel, chair and chief executive.

“By adding the A321 and additional aircraft to our FAOC we can offer both larger capacity and cargo aircraft to Canadian customers and airlines.”
