Cargo operations in action at EIA

Whether it’s a herd of 500 pound bison heading to Russia or 150 tonnes of industrial equipment arriving in Edmonton, EIA Cargo has the infrastructure and expertise to ship all kinds of cargo.

Early on during the pandemic, when other airports were experiencing a slow-down with their cargo flights, EIA remained one of the busiest cargo airports across Canada.  Starting in May, we’ve seen multiple wide body flights every week from Asia, South America and Europe.  In June, we hosted three AN-124’s within 24 hours, a unique and busy day!  We salute our freight forwarders and cargo partners for offloading and transferring millions of pieces of vital personal protective equipment to Canadians in this critical time.  You are cargo’s front-line essential workers.  We thank you!

These videos show how we can provide your business with:

  • Efficient customs
  • Safe and effective ground handling
  • Experience in aircraft and cargo handling of aircraft such as the Antonov 225, Boeing 747, 767 and 777
