WestJet Cargo is represented by Aerocharter in the U.S.

WestJet Cargo announced this week that it has, with immediate effect, appointed Awesome Cargo LLC as its US GSA. Awesome Cargo LLC is Aerocharter de Mexico’s USA GSA arm. It now takes on the responsibility of selling WestJet’s cargo space on board of its passenger and freighter aircraft for all flights operating out of the US to Canada and Mexico. It is a logical step for WestJet Cargo, since the airline launched a collaboration with Aerocharter’s freighter subsidiary just last NOV23. The focus, now, for this year, is on building a strong foundation for its cargo business. WestJet Cargo anticipates mainly perishables, general cargo and high value products being carried from the US on its daily passenger flights out of Los Angeles (LAX) to Calgary (YYC) and Vancouver (YVR), for example. It also operates almost daily services to Edmonton (YEG), and Toronto (YYZ), and serves Winnipeg (YWG) two to four times per week. All passenger flights can take up to 2 tons of cargo, whilst its freighters offer space for up to 20 tons of cargo. The freighter fleet currently connects Los Angeles with Mexico’s Guadalajara (GDL) on days 1, 2, and 6, and Los Angeles with Calgary on days 2, 3, and 5.

Kirsten de Bruijn, Executive Vice-President, Cargo at WestJet, said: “The perfect combination for success, when it comes to a focused and fast-growing freighter newcomer such as WestJet Cargo, is innovation, drive, and a foundation of solid industry experience.”

Luis Ramos, CEO and President of Aerocharter group, explained: “Our mission is to provide the ultimate in customer satisfaction through premium service quality – something we have spent decades honing and which we continue to fine-tune every day. We are delighted to support WestJet Cargo in establishing firm and profitable commercial operations as its GSA in the US. This latest milestone further cements our professional cooperation that began in November 2023 with the strategic Awesome Cargo/WestJet Cargo operations connecting our NLU hub with North America, and I am convinced that this is just the start of a truly ‘awesome’ journey together.”
