Canadian airline Cargojet is deploying more aircraft on domestic routes to meet surging demand from the coronavirus outbreak.
Due to higher demand for e-commerce, healthcare and essential supplies, the express cargo airline is moving aircraft from international and charter routes onto overnight domestic flights and Canada-USA-Mexico services.
Cargojet says it is preparing to handle additional volumes through daytime flights in case overnight services cannot cope.
The airline says it is equipped and planning to handle a surge in volumes by further adjusting its schedule and network.
For communities in northern Canada who are only accessible by air, Cargojet says it is paying special attention to ensure supply chains remain strong.
The airline said, “Cargojet is very well prepared and is doing everything possible to keep the critical supply-chains moving within Canada and on our Transborder services.”
