The airline Air Canada operated a pure cargo flight between Toronto and Basel for the first time on April 14, 2021. A Boeing 787-900 makeshift freighter was used. It is the first regular cargo transatlantic connection since the collapse of the Swissair Group.

Air Canada Cargo has been flying to Basel-Mulhouse Airport since April 14, 2021, twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays, arriving from Toronto at 12:55 p.m. and departing at 20:00 p.m. The new freight route will be served with the Boeing 787-900 Dreamliner. A normal passenger version of the aircraft is used for flights from EuroAirport, but only the cargo space is used to transport the goods.

The new freight connection will facilitate the transport of goods between the trinational region around EuroAirport and North and Latin America for import and export. In addition, it contributes to the economic development of the German-French-Swiss area and leads to broader support for the freight division of EuroAirport.
