MONTREAL — Air Canada has announced that its fleet of all-Business Class Jetz charter aircraft will now be available on commercial flights to popular Sun destinations.
The airline previously announced the deployment of Jetz aircraft earlier this summer between Toronto-Montreal and Toronto-Ottawa.
Starting Oct. 21, customers will now be able to book their Jetz flight for travel between Dec. 12, 2020 and Jan. 6, 2021, with a second schedule for March Break flights currently under development. These flights will also be available for Aeroplan redemptions, meaning members can use their miles on flights.
Nonstop flights between the following city pairs will be available on Air Canada Jetz:
- Toronto to: Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Fort Myers, Barbados, Cancun, Kelowna and Vancouver
- Vancouver to: Phoenix, Palm Springs and Puerto Vallarta
- Montreal to: Fort Lauderdale and Barbados
“Air Canada is very pleased to offer its customers a unique opportunity to travel like a pro athlete or a VIP and experience our premium Jetz service. Customers booking on a Jetz flight will enjoy such amenities as its all-Business Class seating configuration, upgraded meal service, and shorter boarding and deplaning times. These features, combined with Jetz’s other attributes, create a private-jet-like experience,” said Mark Galardo, Vice President of Network Planning and Alliances at Air Canada.
Each of the airline’s four Airbus A319 Jetz aircraft is configured with only 58 North American Business Class seats – less than half the normal number of seats on this aircraft type. Jetz aircraft typically transport customers such as professional sports teams, musical groups on tour and corporate clients on a charter basis. But with the current pandemic restrictions on sports events and other large gatherings, the aircraft are now available for commercial use.
Onboard Jetz, customers will travel in a single cabin with seats offering 42- to 49-inch seat pitch, including four facing seats with a table in the middle that can be booked for families and friends travelling together, and complimentary iPads for entertainment. Customers receive priority check-in and security clearance, premium, pre-packaged meal curated by Montreal chef Antonio Park, complimentary bar and beverage service, as well as Maple Leaf Lounge and Star Alliance Lounge access (where available). Aircraft also depart from prime gate locations, requiring customers to begin boarding only 35 minutes prior to departure.
For customers looking to book leisure travel, Air Canada Vacations is currently developing Ultimate Escapes, which include Jetz flights as well as stays at luxury hotels and resorts, private transfers, exclusive resort discounts, room upgrades and complimentary services.
