MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 9, 2016 /CNW/ - Cargojet Inc. (the "Company" or "Cargojet") (TSX: CJT, CJT.A)

Cargojet acknowledges receipt of Transport Canada's press release on the miscommunication and further clarification of the proposed legislation to increase the limit of international ownership of Canadian air carrier's voting interests to 49% from 25% to apply all carriers, including all-cargo carriers.

"We remain committed to participating as a key stakeholder and to assisting the Federal Government to ensure that this initiative is implemented in the most responsible manner with accompanying safeguards to ensure that all Canadians continue to receive cargo and mail services at the most economical costs while maintaining a healthy Aerospace and Aviation sector", said Ajay Virmani, President & CEO. "We will also continue our dialogue with the Minister of Transport to explore reciprocity with other countries to create business opportunities for Canadian carriers", added Virmani.
