  • Read more 02MAR2014: Canada's Cargojet to double freighter fleet this year
    Cargojet Airways (W8, Hamilton, ON) will nearly double its current freighter fleet after it won a seven-year air express contract from Canada Post/Purolator. Jamie Porteous, Cargojet’s Executive VP Sales and Service, was quoted in The Loadstar as saying the carrier would acquire six B767-300(F)s and three B757-200(F)s by the end of this year adding to its current fleet of two 767-200(F)s, three 757-200(F)s, and nine B727-100(F)s.

    Porteous also indicated that the impending retirement of the 727 freighters would be put on hold.
  • Read more 23FEB2014: Cargojet secures Purolator, CPGOC domestic air services contract
    Cargojet Airways (W8, Hamilton, ON) says it has secured a Domestic Air Cargo Network Services contract and a Master Services Agreement with the Canada Post Group of Companies (CPGOC) for an initial seven-year term.

    Cargojet says the contract includes three 36-month renewal options and based on projected volumes, is likely to generate CAD1billion (USD0.9billion) in revenue for the first seven years.

    Outlining the terms of the deal, Cargojet says it will provide comprehensive Canada-wide air cargo services for the CPGOC, including that of courier Purolator’s national air cargo network. The cargo carrier's own domestic overnight network will also be expanded and enhanced significantly to handle the additional volumes and will thus provide CPGOC with a virtual dedicated Air Cargo Network.

    “Canada Post is undergoing a major transformation as customer demand shifts from mail to parcel delivery with online shopping,” said Jacques Côté, Group President, Physical Delivery Network, Canada Post. “This move will drive operational efficiencies, lower our transportation costs and help ensure our parcel delivery remains competitive from a cost and reliability perspective.”

    The contract was previously operated by Kelowna Flightcraft (KW, Kelowna).
