A look at Air Canada's $60M global operations centre

Tags: Air Canada

Air Canada (AC.B-T) is cutting the ribbon on its new global operations centre in Brampton, Ontario. The 75,000 square foot facility cost $60 million and will house the airline's administrative staff and operations team. If a storm in Europe causes delays, it will be the operations centre in Brampton re-scheduling Air Canada's flights.

The company says the state-of-the-art facility was designed after visiting the operations centres of 18 global airlines, incorporating best practices and avoiding inefficiencies. Each work station is ergonomically designed with input from the employees who will actually be using it.

With the new building ready to go, Air Canada says it will begin training employees now and hopes to have the operations floor up-and-running in January 2014.
