("Cargojet" or the "Corporation") (TSX: CJT, CJT.A) announced today that on April 28, 2016 (the "Redemption Date") it intends to redeem in full all of its then outstanding convertible unsecured debentures due April 30, 2017 (the "Debentures") in accordance with the provisions of the indenture dated as of March 21, 2012 (the "Indenture") between the Corporation and Computershare Trust Company of Canada (the "Trustee").
