We are excited to announce that WestJet Cargo and the GTA Group have agreed to a long-term partnership starting this year that will support the expansion and growth of domestic cargo opportunities for both businesses.
The GTA Group of companies offers a variety of aviation related services including cargo handling and sales. As partners we will increase shipping capacity using four dedicated 737-800NG freighters operated by WestJet, to fulfill overnight express cargo service out of our Toronto hub. These freighter aircraft are perfectly suited for overnight express freight offering increased flexibility, frequency and value. In addition, WestJet Cargo will further support the GTA Group’s service through WestJet’s existing cargo business in the bellies of its commercial fleet.
Together we will be better able to meet the growing needs of our cargo customers who depend on our reliable and on-time performance.
