Canada Jetlines Operations Ltd. (NEO: CJET), a new all-Canadian leisure carrier, announced today that it will commence operations in the summer of 2022 from Toronto Pearson International Airport.
Toronto Pearson is Canada’s busiest airport, with 50.5 million passengers arriving and departing annually before COVID.
Starting with the A320, Canada Jetlines will operate out of the airport with a fleet of Airbus family aircraft. Canada Jetlines will fly to overseas destinations in the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Canadian towns. The start of charter operations is planned for the summer of 2022.
“This is an exciting day for Canada Jetlines as we name Toronto Pearson as our primary travel hub, in preparation for summer service,” stated Eddy Doyle, CEO of Canada Jetlines.
“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.”
“We’re looking forward to welcoming Canada Jetlines to the Toronto Pearson family,” said Janik Reigate, Director of Strategic Customer Relationships, Greater Toronto Airports Authority.
“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.”
