MISSISSAUGA, ON, Aug. 9 /CNW/ - Cargojet Income Fund (the "Fund") TSX: CJT.UN) announced today financial results for the Second Quarter ended June 30, 2010.

"Strengthening customer demand has resulted in revenue increases in our adhoc, charter and ACMI business sectors.  We are pleased with the improvement over the previous Quarter and the relative stability in customer demand after many quarters of economic slow down.  Increased direct expenses were primarily due to the additional block hours flown for charters, higher fuel costs and foreign exchange gains recorded in the prior year," said Ajay Virmani, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "We remain focused on further cost control and reductions that will translate into margin improvements as demand continues to grow in the second half of 2010", added Virmani.
