Canada Jetlines (JETMF) has been given permission by Canadian civil aviation authority Transport Canada to begin operating commercial passenger flights from its hub at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ).
On August 18, 2022, the brand-new ultra-low-cost carrier acquired its air operator certificate (AOC), which attests to the fact that it complies with all safety requirements for aircraft operations. The newcomer can now move forward with its launch preparations.
“The entire team at Canada Jetlines (JETMF) is thrilled to obtain our AOC after meeting all necessary operation standards and passing all inspections,” said Eddy Doyle, CEO of Canada Jetlines (JETMF).
“We excitedly look forward to our launch date, meeting the increased demand for convenient, leisure travel in Canada and beyond and providing more options to explore the world.”
One A320-200 was delivered on December 27, 2021, from commercial aircraft lessor Jackson Square Aviation to Canada Jetlines (JETMF), which was established in 2013. However, the airline anticipates steadily growing its fleet to operate a total of 15 aircraft by 2025.
The start-up airline will adopt the Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair’s business strategy because it is confident in the need for low-cost air travel in Canada.
“The air carrier was created to provide Canadians with value vacation choices and convenient travel options to fly to fantastic leisure destinations within Canada, the U.S.A., Cuba, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Antigua, Bahamas, and other Caribbean nations,” Canada Jetlines (JETMF) said in a statement.
“Canada Jetlines (JETMF) will provide exciting vacation packages to iconic Canadian destinations and beyond via strong partnerships with airports, tourism entities, hotels, hospitality brands, and attractions.”
The official start of the airline is slated for August 29, 2022.
