Air Canada Cargo and Emirates SkyCargo Continue to Enhance Interline Cooperation

[ June 6, 2023   //   ]

Air Canada Cargo and Emirates SkyCargo are now live with their enhanced online booking capabilities. Now customers can easily find and book interline cargo shipments through the Emirates SkyCargo flights, including between the Americas and Southeast Asia and India, through key European hubs.

The enhanced online booking capabilities enable Air Canada Cargo customers to book shipments that will travel on Emirates SkyCargo flights on an interline basis via, WebCargo, Cargo-One and CargoAI as well as our direct connect customers.

“We are excited to see these continued improvements to further enhance the user experience for both Air Canada Cargo customers and Emirates SkyCargo customers. This strong partnership will continue to evolve in ways that bring tremendous value to the forwarding community, and this is yet another great step in that direction,” said Matthieu Casey, Managing Director, Commercial, at Air Canada Cargo.

This latest development follows the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in February between the two major airlines regarding interline cooperation and also builds on the broader strategic commercial partnership between Air Canada and Emirates, which was announced last year.

Air Canada Cargo will have access to Emirates SkyCargo’s high frequency distribution network through the belly-hold 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, customers booking with 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 belly-hold capacity of Air Canada’s scheduled passenger flights.

Air Canada and Emirates first announced their global partnership in 2022. In addition to this latest cargo development, the airlines recently implemented a passenger codeshare agreement which covers 46 destinations across North America, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. Air Canada and Emirates have also launched joint loyalty program benefits for members of Aeroplan and Skywards to earn and redeem miles and points on flights operated by Emirates and Air Canada respectively.
