Air Canada and Air Canada Cargo yesterday operated its first industrial flight into Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, with its Boeing 767 freighter. The service can be operated as soon as per week.
“We’re excited so as to add one more vacation spot to our increasing freighter community. This new service builds upon our capabilities to serve the island by way of Air Canada’s passenger community, offering constant year-round cargo capability for our key prospects within the area,” stated Jon Turner, Vice President, Cargo at Air Canada.
Air Canada Cargo’s flight to Punta Cana is the most recent addition to its worldwide freighter community, following not too long ago launched freighter providers to San José, Basel, Liege, Dallas, Atlanta and Bogota.
“We’re happy to welcome the primary freighter flight from our allies of Air Canada Cargo. As winners of the Airports Council’s Worldwide Airport Service High quality Awards for seven consecutive years, we’re assured that it will contribute to the excellence and diversification of our cargo operations,” affirmed Giovanni Rainieri, director of Airside Operations at Punta Cana Worldwide Airport.
