HistoryEdit

The airline was established on 21 February 2002 and started operations in June 2002. It was formerly Canada 3000 Cargo. Ajay Virmani initially acquired 50% of Canada 3000 Cargo in July 2001 and bought the remaining half in February 2002. He is the Chief Executive and President of the airline. The name change to Cargojet came into effect on 22 February 2002. In July 2002 it acquired Winnport Logistics.

On July 17, 2007 Cargojet Airways acquired the Georgian Express cargo operations. The regional operation will operate under the name CARGOJET REGIONAL.[5] When acquired, Georgian Express operated three Beechcraft 1900 freighter and four Cessna 208 Caravan freighter aircraft.

In May of 2019, CargoJet announced a partnership with Canadian rapper Drake, naming him an ambassador to the brand and procuring him a custom Boeing 767 commercial airliner converted to serve as a private jet to the rapper.[6][7]
