Air cargo Western Canada - Argentina

I am hoping to find shipping by air for my bike from Western Canada (Calgary Canada if possible) to Buenos Aires Argentina sometime between November and January. Has anyone done a shipment like this recently? I'm trying to find reputable companies that may do a run like this, but it seems it is easier from Europe or South Africa. Any info would be appreciated Thanks!

Hi. We are shipping from Montreal to Buenos Aires. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you are interested in sharing and comparing prices. agents, ect.
Looking into destination charges, customs and port fees in Buenos Aires at the moment, not so easy. Let me know if you have found good info.

Air - Calgary to Buenos Aires

Also, i got a quote for air cargo for two same bikes from Calgary to BA. Company was Hellman and the quote was around $3400. I bit more expensive than sea.
