Air Canada adds A330 to its seatless cargo-only pax ops

Air Canada Cargo has operated over 500 cargo-only flights on the airline’s widebody passenger fleet since it launched its scheduled and on-demand programmes.

On April 18, Air Canada Cargo staff in Montreal unloaded cabin cargo on the first flight operated by a converted B777-300ER. With the seats removed, the aircraft cabin was packed with boxes of PPE from Shanghai.

This was the first of several aircraft to undergo this type of transformation. Just a few weeks later, the carrier now has the first converted A330-300 operating on a scheduled cargo-only flight to and from Tel Aviv.

Air Canada also announced last week a partnership with Jazz Aviation in Canada which will see remodeled Dash-8 aircraft operating on domestic routes.

“With the support of Air Canada’s leadership, we at Air Canada Cargo have risen to the challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic by finding solutions and maximising the resources available to us,” the cargo division says.
