TORONTO — Canada Jetlines’ tour operator arm, Canada Jetlines Vacations Ltd., has gotten the green light from TICO.
TICO has provided approval to the carrier’s subsidiary Canada Jetlines Vacations Ltd. as a travel retailer and travel wholesaler under the Travel Industry Act, 2022.
“Canada Jetlines Vacations is thrilled to officially receive approval from the highly respected TICO organization,” says Canada Jetlines COO, Duncan Bureau. “We look forward to offering our passengers the resources, and consumer protection benefits to create a safe and efficient travel experience as a TICO-registered company.”
Canada Jetlines is forging ahead with launch plans for this summer. The start-up carrier announced its Level 2 approval from the CTA in May 2022, two months after it debuted its first A320 aircraft. Canada Jetlines, which wants to work with travel agents, is aiming to build a network that will eventually include U.S., Mexico and Caribbean destinations as well as Canadian cities. In April 2022 Canada Jetlines announced Toronto Pearson as its hub.
The formal CTA commercial license will come following the issuance of the Air Operator Certificate (AOC) by Transport Canada.
