AIR Canada Cargo has announced it will end its operations at LaGuardia Airport (LGA) as of July 30 and will continue to operate into and from both JFK Airport and Newark Airport (EWR).

'Between those two stations, we provide convenient transportation by truck and widebody aircraft to connect to the rest of our worldwide network,' Air Canada said.



According to a statement from Air Canada Cargo's managing director for sales and commercial strategy, Vito Cerone, the carrier's cargo traffic increased by 7 per cent domestically and 8 per cent internationally from 2017 to 2018, in revenue tonne miles. Statistics from IATA put Air Canada's 2018 cargo traffic at 2.64 billion freight tonne kilometers (FTKs).



Meanwhile, LGA's cargo volume in 2018 fell by 12.8 per cent year on year. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey reported total freight tonnage of about 5,439 metric tonnes. Its mail traffic, however, was up 88 per cent to 4,408 tonnes during 2018, reported New York's Air Cargo World.
