Canada Jetlines has revealed this week that they will be sending two aircraft to Europe on wet lease this Summer to a “prominent carrier”.

This comes following an announcement made at the start of the year that they will be adding two Airbus A320s to their fleet.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Canada Jetlines has said that the “prominent European carrier” will receive the first aircraft in April 2024.

This will be used on a six monthly basis by the airline, with the other one coming to Europe in June for three months.

The airline states that the “collaboration reflects Canada Jetlines operational ability in maximizing fleet utilization by deploying its aircraft and crew to Europe in the summer.”

Adding to this further was Eddy Doyle, the CEO of Canada Jetlines:

“In January, we announced the expansion of our fleet to 6 aircraft. The utilization of these planes is widely needed in Europe during their busy season.”

“The two planes will return to Canada for our busy fall/winter travel period to leisure destinations.”

“This partnership underscores our commitment to maximizing efficiency and meeting the seasonal demands of our customers.”

Who Is The “Prominent European Carrier”?

In the whole release, Canada Jetlines didn’t mention who the “prominent European carrier” is.

What we do know is that it will be an airline that is experiencing significant demand to the point additional aircraft are needed.

Furthermore, it will be interesting to see whether it is a holiday-oriented airline at all.

For example, in the Summer, TUI often contracts aircraft from Sunwing Airlines to cater to the demand.

This is where often passengers have seen Canadian-registered aircraft taking them back home to Europe.

Such data available is not disclosing who the prominent airline actually is, with that all to come in due course, no doubt.

Overall, this is a good move from Canada Jetlines to send two aircraft into Europe during the Summer 2024 season.

It is clear that in the region, their demand for air travel isn’t as significant as it’s European counterparts.

Furthermore, it will be interesting to see which European carrier will be using these aircraft during the busy period.

In the meantime, all we can do is sit and wait until it’s either announced, or we see the aircraft flying around Europe.
