British Columbia Relief Effort

19 November 2021 - Dulles VA - Today Capitol Logistics has announced that they will increase capacity and operate extra flights to southern British Colombia, Canada due to the recent flooding destroying critical road, rail, and pipleine infrastructure in the area. 

"Captitol Logistics has always stood with our partners in Canada and around the globe, and is ready to add capacity and assistance in times of Disaster" Director of Flight Operations Joe Vermeulen said. "It is essential for people's survival to keep supply lines open both into the Vancouver area, and as well to move cargo out of the Port of Vancouver to Alberta where it is desparately needed."

Flights will be operated by Boeing 737, 757, 767, and 747 Widebody aircraft on existing scheduled routes into Vancouver, and in addition to special charter flights between Vancouver and relief operations based out of Calgary and Edmonton.

"We are confident that our pilot base will support this logistical and humanitarian mission. Our pilots are among the best and most professional cargo pilots in the sky, and on behalf of them all we express our condolences to those who have lost lives, livelyhoods, property, and animals in this terrible disaster" Vermeulen added.

Flights into Vancouver will bring in vital essential supplies, and flights out of Vancouver will carry essential shipments to help keep cargo moving from Vancouver to the rest of Canada and the United States.
