WestJet Cargo Partners with Awesome Cargo LLC as US GSA

Our Bureau - : Feb 5, 2024 - : 4:49 pm

WestJet Cargo has appointed Awesome Cargo LLC, a division of Aerocharter GSA, as its General Sales Agent (GSA) for commercial operations based in Los Angeles, effective immediately. Awesome Cargo LLC will be responsible for marketing WestJet’s cargo capacities on passenger and freighter flights operating from the US to Canada and Mexico.

The key focus in 2024 for WestJet Cargo is on establishing a robust business network on which to continue expanding its cargo network. Following on from its collaboration launch with Aerocharter de México’s freighter subsidiary, Awesome Cargo in November 2023, the cargo airline has now appointed the group’s USA GSA arm, Awesome Cargo LLC, to market its freight capacities out of the US which primarily includes perishables, general cargo, and high-value products.

“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,” says Kirsten de Bruijn, Executive Vice-President, Cargo at WestJet, on Monday (Feb. 5).

WestJet Cargo operates daily passenger flights from Los Angeles to Calgary and Vancouver, with additional services to Edmonton and Toronto, as well as two to four flights per week to Winnipeg. Each passenger flight offers up to 2 tonnes of cargo capacity. The airline’s freighter services, with a capacity of up to 20 tonnes per flight, connect Los Angeles with Guadalajara on days 1, 2, and 6, and fly between Los Angeles and Calgary on days 2, 3, and 5.

“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,” Luis Ramos, CEO and President of Aerocharter group, explains. “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,” he added.
