TORONTO — Canada Jetlines has taken delivery of its first A320-200 aircraft from Jackson Square Aviation.

The airline is aiming for 15 aircraft by 2025.

As reported last month on Travelweek.ca, the travel agent distribution channel is a priority for Canada Jetlines.

The start-up carrier has been years in the making, but the executive team now in place, including CEO Eddy Doyle and Chief Commercial Officer Duncan Bureau, looks to have momentum.

The airline’s launch is slated for spring 2022, with a six-week run of Toronto-Miami flights to start, in collaboration with partner GlobalX. Canada Jetlines is aiming to operate its first revenue flight in Q2 2022, and wants to introduce flights from Toronto to the U.S., Mexico, Caribbean and Canadian destinations throughout 2022.

“This is a milestone day for our team as we get to witness the inception of our branded fleet, with the delivery of our first aircraft,” says Brad Warren, VP Maintenance Operations for Canada Jetlines. “We have collectively been building towards this moment and we couldn’t be happier to partner with Jackson Square Aviation as we prepare for take-off.”
