A step forward in fleet growth
Canada Jetlines CEO, Eddy Doyle, was optimistic about the company’s fleet expansion plan coming to fruition with the arrival of the third aircraft.
He highlighted that the timing couldn’t be more perfect, as it aligns with the summer season, bolstering their support for existing customers and setting the stage for continued growth during the busy winter season ahead.

About Canada Jetlines
Canada Jetlines operates on an ultra-low-cost model, and is headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario. The airline was founded in 2013 and launched its inaugural revenue flight on September 22, 2022, from Toronto Pearson to Calgary.
The airline aims to meet the market demand in Canada for low-fare air travel, planning to follow the business model of European low-cost carriers Ryanair and easyJet by operating from smaller secondary airports when possible.
With the arrival of the latest aircraft, the current fleet consists of three Airbus A320 aircraft, with stated plans to expand to a fleet of 15 aircraft by the end of 2025.
The carrier’s initial route network consisted of domestic flights between Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver. However, in February 2023, the airline announced that it would be pausing its domestic operations in order to focus on international flights to sun destinations. As of July 2023, Canada Jetlines’ only operating routes are from Toronto Pearson to Cancún and Las Vegas.
