The newest airline in Canada, Canada Jetlines, revealed late last week that its first flight will take place on August 15. The inaugural flight will go to Winnipeg from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) (YWG).
New Canadian Airline for Leisure
Canada Jetlines is a brand-new leisure airline in the country. Although this is not brand-new information, if everything goes as planned, the carrier will finally begin flying next month. The development of Canada Jetlines began in 2019, although the COVID-19 pandemic undoubtedly delayed launch preparations. The airline recently finished its final demonstration flight after years of planning, and it is now prepared to earn its Air Operator Certificate.
“The entire staff at Canada Jetlines is eager to provide travellers with an easy route from Toronto to the lovely city of Winnipeg beginning on our first day of operation on August 15. We appreciate the warm assistance provided by the local community and airport. We are eagerly anticipating our inaugural trip to Winnipeg and hope to soon provide more travel choices to the people of Manitoba”CEO of Canada Jetlines Eddy Doyle
“At Winnipeg Richardson International Airport, we are delighted to welcome Canada Jetlines as our newest airline partner, and we are forward to take part in its debut trip. The rising numbers of passengers we’ve welcomed at YWG over the past few months show that there is a high demand for travel at the moment. We look forward to collaborating with Canada Jetlines to expand the options available to our neighbourhood and support the economic resurgence of the regional tourism sector”President and CEO of the Winnipeg Airports Authority, Nick Hays
Even though Canada Jetlines does not yet possess a licence from the Canadian Transportation Agency, it is already selling tickets for its trips. The Canada Transportation Act’s Section 59 permits airlines to sell air travel tickets before being granted operating authorizations. Before reservations are confirmed, each passenger is made aware that the flights are contingent upon the airline gaining authorization from the Canadian Transportation Agency.
Canada Jetlines completes test flights
On July 5, inspectors from Transport Canada departed on Canada Jetline’s final demonstration flight. The airline’s first Airbus A320 aircraft travelled 792 miles from the Region of Waterloo International Airport west of Toronto to the Greater Moncton Roméo Leblanc International Airport in New Brunswick. The aeroplane made a landing, turned around, and returned to its starting point. Eddy Doyle, CEO of Canda Jetlines, expressed hope that the airline’s Air Operator Certificate will be issued quickly.
“Our operations team’s accomplishment in successfully completing this extensive programme with Transport Canada makes us incredibly proud. Transport Canada merely needs to finish a few administrative tasks before issuing the AOC, and this is anticipated to happen within the next two weeks. As a start-up during the pandemic, we place a strong emphasis on planning and teamwork. At this time, we have the necessary personnel and resources to host and welcome visitors flying with Canada Jetlines.”
Canada Jetlines now operates a single Airbus A320, but it intends to grow its fleet to 15 aircraft over the following three years. Its initial aircraft has 180 seats that are 18 inches wide and have USB connections for charging personal electronics in a single-class layout.
