Emirates and Air Canada have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) last week to deliver more benefits to air freight customers around the world.
The two carriers will work closely on a number of initiatives, which include expanding cargo interline options and block space agreements, allowing access to more capacity on a larger combined network.
Both airlines bring particular experience in handling unique cargo on their dedicated fleet of freighters and passenger aircraft, including oil and gas drilling equipment, car parts and pharmaceuticals.
Nabil Sultan, senior vice president for cargo at Emirates, said the cooperation with Air Canada will offer added value through more rapid reach to other Canadian cities via the Dubai-based airline’s Toronto and US gateways.
The agreement, pending any required regulatory approvals, builds on the airlines’ strategic commercial partnership announced last year.
The memorandum of understanding was signed at Emirates headquarters in Dubai by Nabil Sultan, divisional senior vice president for cargo at Emirates, and Matthieu Casey, commercial managing director at Air Canada Cargo.
