Exiting Air Cargo

Johanne Cadorette

     These days retirements are not uncommon as some top people move out of the airline industry driven by the unforgiving downward pressure of the absolutely terrible airline passenger business brought on and moved forward by the global COVID-19 pandemic.
     Of course, many of us wonder if air cargo “saved the airlines,” and now is ramping up, adding aircraft, freighters, new pharma capabilities and “gee whiz” IT capabilities, why would air cargo be losing so many gifted people?
     OK, the economics argument we guess, but what about the air cargo reality?
     These are not new thoughts, but we need to reflect on how the industry is going to be impacted by the loss of so many great people in air cargo that have moved out of every strata of our business since 2019, just as air cargo has gained almost mythical levels of fame and wonder for delivering the vaccines, and “saving the world”.
     Just learned that Johanne Cadorette, Manager Global Marketing and Communication Strategy at Air Canada is moving on to the non-profit sector.
     Johanne is a true professional in every sense of the word and skill.
     What is particularly outstanding about this lady was her openness and ability to put herself and her imagination at work in developing themes for Air Canada Cargo that are unique and resonate with readers.
     You have undoubtedly noted that the same press release news is carried across the board in air cargo media, resulting in the reader attention switch to turn off or maybe get stuck on hold.
     We try and take a different tact by creating stories that sidestep sameness and explore new ideas.
     Johanne has always been an ally in that effort.
     The hope is that whoever steps up to the plate next will be able to use the kind of imagination and inventiveness that Johanne shared with air cargo writers worldwide.
     Johanne, for air cargo was unique. We wish her well in her new role as she steps out.
