Canada Jetlines makes “difficult decision” to delay launch date

TORONTO — Canada Jetlines is pushing back its launch date by two weeks.

Originally scheduled for Aug. 15, 2022, the carrier’s inaugural flights out of Toronto Pearson International Airport to Winnipeg and Moncton are now set to depart on Aug. 29, 2022, subject to receipt of final licensing approval.

The new, all-Canadian leisure airline is working with Transport Canada (TC) and the Canadian Transportation Association, which are currently evaluating all completed documentation required for this application.

“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 will be offering special launch fares for a limited time for flights out of its travel hub at Toronto Pearson to Winnipeg (YWG) and Moncton (YQM). For more information go to
