Canada Jetlines signs third A320 aircraft

TORONTO — Canada Jetlines has signed a letter of intent for its third Airbus A320 aircraft, expected to be delivered by July 2023.

Provided by a global aviation lessor, the new aircraft will be equipped with two CFM56-5B4/3 engines and configured with the new Recaro 3530 seats, in-seat usb power and personal electronic device holder. Canada Jetlines will also be installing the Flymingo Box system, which offers an enhanced passenger experience through its wireless inflight entertainment.

“I am pleased that we have identified our third aircraft,” stated Canada Jetlines CEO, Eddy Doyle. “We are seeing significant demand for the summer season and the addition of this aircraft will help support our existing customers and continue the Company’s growth plans.”

The delivery of the aircraft remains subject to customary conditions, including the execution of a definitive aircraft lease agreement and satisfactory inspection of the aircraft by Canada Jetlines.

Earlier this week, the airline confirmed that it has paused its domestic routes while it refocuses on sun destinations and leasing additional planes. Halted routes include twice-weekly service between Toronto and Vancouver, as well as Toronto-Calgary. In-country flights are said to be resuming this fall.
