Air Canada Cargo Expands Footprint in Frankfurt
The additional capacity is in addition to the existing 5,000 square metres already occupied by Air Canada Cargo in its self-handled Frankfurt hub
Leading air cargo provider Air Canada Cargo on Wednesday announced that it has increased handling capacity at its Frankfurt hub by 35% in preparation for the start of service to the airport by its Boeing 767-300ER freighters later this year.
The additional capacity is in addition to the existing 5,000 square metres already occupied by Air Canada Cargo in its self-handled Frankfurt hub.
"This represents a significant enhancement for Air Canada Cargo in Frankfurt, a facility that plays a key role in our global operations. It will further enhance our capabilities as we ramp up operations with the anticipated arrival of regular freighter operations into this critical hub," said John Lloyd, Director, Europe, Middle East and India at Air Canada Cargo.
Incidentally, Air Canada Cargo is Canada's largest air cargo provider as measured by cargo capacity, with a presence in over 50 countries and self-handled hubs in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Chicago, London, and Frankfurt. Air Canada Cargo offers reliable air freight lift and connectivity to hundreds of destinations across six continents using Air Canada's domestic and international passenger flights, cargo-only flights with its fleet of Boeing 767-300ER freighter aircraft, and trucking services.
