Cargojet Inc. has recently announced the successful recertification of its ISO 9001:2015 Quality Standard Accreditation, marking an impressive 21st consecutive year of upholding this prestigious certification.

As the only air cargo carrier in Canada to hold this accreditation, Cargojet has once again demonstrated its unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional service to its customers.

This remarkable achievement reaffirms Cargojet’s position as a leader in the industry, showcasing its dedication to maintaining excellence in standards, processes, and procedures.

ISO 9001:2015 Quality Standard Accreditation

The ISO 9001:2015 Quality Standard Accreditation in Canada is a certification that is awarded to organizations that have successfully implemented a quality management system (QMS) that meets the requirements of the ISO 9001:2015 standard. The standard specifies requirements for a QMS when an organization:

  • Needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and
  • Aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.


ISO 9001:2015 is an internationally recognized standard that focuses on quality management systems and continuous improvement. To achieve this prestigious accreditation, an organization must undergo rigorous assessments and evaluations of its documented quality management system.

Cargojet’s facilities are subject to regular audits to ensure that the implemented quality management systems remain effective and aligned with industry best practices.

A testimony to unwavering commitment

Dr. Ajay K. Virmani, the President and CEO of Cargojet, expressed his pride and satisfaction in achieving this milestone. He credited the exceptional team at Cargojet for their relentless dedication in surpassing customer expectations and maintaining the highest level of service.

“We have once again earned this certification due to the hard and conscientious efforts of our team who continue to surpass our customer’s expectations while maintaining excellence in standards, processes and procedures,” he said.

Leader in premium air cargo services

Cargojet’s pursuit of excellence extends beyond its ISO 9001:2015 recertification. As a prominent provider of time-sensitive premium air cargo services, the company serves all major cities across North America.

With dedicated, ACMI, and international charter services, Cargojet has established itself as a trusted partner for businesses seeking reliable and efficient air cargo solutions.

Unmatched fleet and operations

One of the key elements contributing to Cargojet’s success is its well-maintained fleet of 40 aircraft. The company operates its network with its own impressive fleet, enabling it to exercise a higher degree of control over its operations and service quality.

This level of autonomy allows Cargojet to optimize its routes, schedules, and cargo handling, ensuring a seamless experience for its customers.

Cargojet is a provider of time sensitive premium air cargo services to all major cities across North America, providing dedicated, ACMI and international charter services, and carries over 25 million pounds of cargo weekly.

The ISO 9001:2015 standard is generic and is intended to be applicable to any organization, regardless of its type or size, or the products and services it provides.

In Canada, the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) is the national accreditation body for ISO 9001:2015 certification. The SCC accredits third-party certification bodies that conduct audits of organizations seeking ISO 9001:2015 certification.
