TORONTO, Nov. 12 /CNW/ - Cargojet Income Fund (the "Fund") (TSX: CJT.UN) announced that its Trustees have approved an increase to its ongoing monthly cash distributions from $0.027 per unit to $0.042 per unit, or $0.504 on an annualized basis, for the period from November 1, 2009 to November 30, 2009. The distribution will be paid to unit holders of record as at the close of business on November 30, 2009 and will be payable on December 15, 2009.
