MONTREAL, January 26, 2022 – Air Canada Cargo today 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.
