AIR Canada Cargo and Emirates SkyCargo have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to deliver more benefits to their air freight customers around the world, reports London's Loadstar.
The MoU, which builds on the airlines' strategic commercial partnership announced last year, was signed at Emirates headquarters in Dubai by Emirates vice president Nabil Sultan, Emirates vice president and Air Canada Cargo commercial director Matthieu Casey.
Under the terms of the MoU, Air Canada Cargo and Emirates SkyCargo will work on expanding cargo interline options and block space agreements, pending any required regulatory approvals.
These enhancements aim to offer freight customers of both airlines access to more capacity on a larger combined global network.
Air Canada Cargo will have access to Emirates SkyCargo's high frequency distribution network through the bellyhold of Emirates scheduled passenger flights to over 140 global destinations, as well as the additional capacity offered by 11 freighters currently in the Emirates fleet.
In return, SkyCargo will have access to over 60 cities in Canada and more than 150 cities across five continents through Air Canada Cargo thanks to a fleet of Boeing 767 freighters and the bellyhold capacity of Air Canada's scheduled passenger flights.
