Canada Jetlines Adds Moncton To List of Inaugural Flight Launches

LONDON – Ahead of its launch on August 15, Canada Jetlines has announced the Toronto-Moncton flight will operate on that day as well.

Using its Airbus A320 aircraft, the airline hasn’t stated how many times per week this carrier will operate the route. Seeing as they only have one A320 at present, it won’t be that many flights per week.

“Canada Jetlines is excited to offer service on our inaugural day out of our hub in Toronto to the vibrant destination of Moncton, New Brunswick,” shared Eddy Doyle, CEO of Canada Jetlines.

“We’ve chosen Moncton as our first destination in the Maritime provinces for its attractive offering for tourists and its convenient reach to a large segment of the population of New Brunswick. We’re thankful to the airport and the community for their support in making this flight a reality.”

“We are thrilled to officially welcome Canada Jetlines to Greater Moncton Roméo LeBlanc International Airport as it takes to the skies with its inaugural flights. With a focus on leisure travel, the arrival of Canada Jetlines expands flight options in our community, boosting tourism and supporting economic recovery,” stated Courtney Burns, President, and CEO, and Greater Moncton International Airport Authority Inc.

Establishing The Portfolio…


The inaugural Toronto-Winnipeg flight for Canada Jetlines has been penciled in for August 15, as the airline proceeds with the next step of its launch.

This will be the carrier’s first route.

The airline’s journey to an inaugural flight started back in May 2022 when it received its Stage 2 approval from the Canadian Transportation Agency.

This marked the issuance of the carrier’s commercial license, followed by the Air Operator’s Certificate by Transport Canada. At the time, Doyle said the following:

“This is an important milestone for Canada Jetlines as we are approaching the completion of the AOC process with Transport Canada. The teams of both the CTA and Canada Jetlines have been working with great collaboration and diligence to ensure we have met or exceeded the requirements for a start-up airline operating in Canada.”

“We are working in earnest towards the finish line of the certification process. We are confident that we will operate our first commercial flight this summer and plan to announce our commercial schedule in the coming weeks”.

By June, the carrier was approved as a registered travel retailer and wholesaler under the Travel Industry Act, before completing its necessary Transport Canada demonstration flights earlier this month.

“We are extremely proud of our operations team for successfully completing this comprehensive program with Transport Canada. There are only a few administrative items for Transport Canada to complete before issuing the AOC, which is expected to be completed within the next two weeks,” shared Eddy Doyle, CEO of Canada Jetlines.

“As a start-up during the pandemic, we emphasize preparation and collaboration. We are currently staffed and equipped to accommodate and welcome guests to travel with Canada Jetlines.”

By July 18, the airline was given the green light to accept ticket reservations for the Summer 2022 schedule.

With these milestones all hit, Canada Jetlines can now look forward to launching services on August 15 with the one Airbus A320-200 they have secured in their fleet already.
