Pumping TrafficAir Canada put out some figures last Friday and Matthieu Casey, Senior Director, Cargo Global Sales and Revenue Optimization could not be happier. “We’re tremendously proud of the strongest quarterly results Air Canada Cargo has ever seen,” Matt (left) told PumpingTraffic, adding “Those numbers and that effort is a testament to our continued efforts to maintain stable and consistent capacity flows for our customers across the globe through cargo-only flying. Our team achieved a record USD$358 million in Cargo revenue for the second quarter, which represents an increase of USD$89 million, or 33% compared to the same quarter in 2020. We’re relieved to see our passenger network starting to rebuild and continue to provide cargo-only flying in markets where capacity is still constrained. With arrival of our first 767 freighters in Q4, the combination of these, our continued cargo-only flying and passenger flights resuming paints a strong portrait for the rest of the year.” . . .
