Canada Jetlines Pushes Launch Dateby Dori Saltzman /
Canada Jetlines, the new, all-Canadian airline, has pushed back the date of its inaugural flights between Toronto Pearson International Airport and Winnipeg and Moncton, New Brunswick. The flights, which were scheduled for August 15 will now take place on August 29, subject to receipt of final licensing approval.
The airline is working closely with Transport Canada and the Canadian Transportation Association, who are still evaluating all completed documentation for the licensing.
“We’ve made the difficult decision to change our launch date as we continue to work with the regulatory authorities in Canada to secure our AOC,” said Eddy Doyle, CEO of Canada Jetlines. “We greatly appreciate the effort and diligence that TC goes through to approve new airlines and remain optimistic throughout the process. We will continue to build strategic partnerships with destinations, travel agencies, and airports as we build out our five-year strategy.”
Canada Jetlines is offering special launch fares for a limited time on flights out of its travel hub at Pearson. Flights are available to Moncton, NB and Winnipeg, MB. (Tickets are being sold pursuant to an exemption from the application of section 59 of the Canada Transportation Act, which permits the airline to sell tickets for air travel prior to issuance of it license.)
