Canada Jetlines ready for takeoff soon at Pearson Airport

TORONTO — There’s no specific launch date yet but Canada Jetlines has a hub: Toronto Pearson International Airport.

Flights will start out of Toronto this summer, with a network that will come to include U.S., Mexico and Caribbean destinations as well as Canadian cities, on A320s.

Last month the start-up carrier unveiled its first A320 at an industry event at Region of Waterloo International Airport. The airline is eager to work with travel agents.

“This is an exciting day for Canada Jetlines as we name Toronto Pearson as our primary travel hub, in preparation for summer service,” said Canada Jetlines CEO, Eddy Doyle. “This partnership will allow us to better service both domestic and international travelers to and from Canada’s busiest airport. We are optimistic for the future of Canada Jetlines and aim to strengthen the aviation industry in Toronto and beyond, increasing job opportunities and economic growth in the region.”

Adds Janik Reigate, Director of Strategic Customer Relationships, GTAA: “We’re looking forward to welcoming Canada Jetlines to the Toronto Pearson family. The aviation activity at Toronto Pearson drives regional, provincial and national economic growth, and as we look to a brighter future as travel restrictions continue to ease, new partnerships such as this one will be vital to driving Canada’s post-pandemic recovery.”
