KELOWNA - Kelowna Flightcraft will no longer be holding a contract with Purolator Courier — one they've held since 1977 — starting March 31.
The contract was for the carriage of Purolator's cargo product and the Canada Post mail.
“Since 1977 we have been a key supplier of dedicated and reliable air services for Purolator and, more recently, Canada Post. ” Kelowna Flightcraft's President Tracy Medve, said. “While their decision is disappointing, particularly in light of the 99 per cent reliability we currently provide, it is by no means the end of Kelowna Flightcraft. Our diverse and financially strong company has been around for nearly forty-four years. We have many great customers and contracts, and we have considerable opportunity for the future.”
Kelowna Flightcraft operates and leases over 70 aircraft and is Canada’s largest cargo operator. They are also a leading aircraft maintenance, modification and manufacturing organization. They began operations in 1970 and currently employ 1000 employees across Canada with their head office located in Kelowna.
