Purolator enhances air network

TORONTO — Purolator is enhancing its express air network capacity through a new service agreement with Voyageur Aviation Corp, a subsidiary of Chorus Aviation Inc. headquartered in North Bay, Ont.

Purolator can now offer more service options as its cross-border and overall business continues to grow, the company said.

“Purolator is always investing in our network to meet the needs of our customers,” said Chris Spanjaard, senior vice-president and chief operations officer, Purolator. “This agreement with Voyageur complements our existing network and enhances our capability to service our cross-border business and customers with high-priority express shipments.”

Purolator said it will gain more service options for cross-border shipments by adding this capability. This includes giving Canadian businesses and consumers more access to the broad product diversity the US marketplace offers, the company said.

“We are delighted to have established this relationship with Purolator and look forward to introducing our Dash 8-100 PF to expand capacity. With a growing and innovative business, we are honoured that Purolator has chosen Voyageur to support increasing service to their valued customers,” said Scott Tapson, president of Voyageur Aviation Corp.
