New low cost airline, Canada Jetlines – operating as jetlines – made its first commercial flight today.
AU120 was the first flight and it was from the airline’s base at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport to Calgary International Airport – just over fours hours away.
At the moment, Toronto – Calgary is the airline’s only scheduled route and it plans to fly this route twice a week to start with.
The airline plans to service the leisure market both domestically and trans border with flights to the U.S., Caribbean, and Mexico.
Specific destinations possible in Canada include Montréal’s Saint-Hubert Airport, Kelowna, Québec City and Winnipeg in Canada. International destinations might include Los Cabos, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta in Mexico and Dominican Republic.
The airline currently has one Airbus A320 with a second due in December. It plans to expand the fleet to 15 Airbus A320s by 2025 at a rate of five per year.
Canada Jetlines will fly its A320s with 174 seats in a single class with a 3-3 layout.
Like most airlines – low cost or traditional – they will have a range of fares. Jetlite, Jetplus, JetFlex and JetLines are the names for their fares. JetLite is the cheapest and that gets you a seat – no more. JetLines is the most expensive fare and includes seat selection and two checked bags.
