Mr Berry was previously the president at Alaska Airlines' subsidiary McGee Air Services. He will report to executive vice president and chief commercial offer Lucie Guillemette.
'Berry's entrepreneurial approach combined with his solid air cargo background is well-suited to operationalise these commercial opportunities, and lead the strategic direction of our cargo business to optimise the growth of e-commerce while leveraging Air Canada's fleet and global reach,' said Ms Guillemette.
'Air Canada was the first airline globally to transform aircraft and double freight capacity by removing seats to enable cargo transport in the passenger cabin,' she said.
'We are planning the conversion of several owned Boeing 767-300ERs recently retired from passenger service to all-freighter aircraft to continue growing the cargo business,' said Ms Guillemette.
