Strike Aviation Air Canada Strike Aviation is gaining momentum in Costa Rica as it begins to service Air Canada cargo flights, thus marking a significant development in the company's presence in the Central American market.

For the first time in Air Canada's history, the airline has decided to operate a cargo aircraft to and from San Jose, Costa Rica.

The inaugural Air Canada cargo flight to San Jose airport took place on May 19th. "We are delighted to strengthen our position in Latin America - one of our most important business centers. We are also pleased that our successful activities in this region have allowed Air Canada to recognize the potential of this cargo route," points Frank Ziesemer, the CEO of Strike Aviation Group.

Since 2018, Strike Aviation has been the official GSSA (General Sales & Service Agent) of Air Canada. Oliver Spors, Managing Director of Central America & Panama at Strike, added: "We are proud to have acquired this freighter for the San Jose to Toronto route and to spearhead the success of the Air Canada Cargo Team in Central America. We attribute this accomplishment to our local Strike Aviation Cargo Team and the invaluable support from our clients. We hope to add more freighters in the upcoming months to meet the demands of the local market."

Previously, Strike Aviation performed cargo operations on regular Air Canada passenger flights, with the airline successfully operating passenger flights to and from Costa Rica using B787-800 aircraft. However, with the decision to initiate cargo flights, Air Canada will now employ its B767-300 freighter. This aircraft has a payload capacity of 55 tons and will operate twice a week from the Central American Pineapple and Medical Devices HUB in Costa Rica to Canada and other destinations.
Strike Aviation has been operating in Central America since 2016.
