Air Canada expands Toronto cold chain capability

[ October 1, 2021   //   ]

Air Canada has started work on a $16-million project to expand its cold chain handling at Toronto Pearson International Airport. Once completed, the upgraded facility will feature over 30,000sq ft of temperature-controlled areas and an expanded cooler to fully meet the requirements of cold chain shipments such as pharmaceuticals, fresh food and other perishables. It is also converting eight Boeing 767-300ER aircraft into dedicated freighters, the first of which will enter service in the fourth quarter of this year, initially on key routes to provide additional capacity during the peak season.
