The new Canadian startup has signed an agreement to acquire its first Airbus A320 via leasing, scheduled for delivery in February 2022.
Canada faced great challenges due to the COVID 19 health crisis: until August 2021 they were not allowed to leave the country for tourism. Despite the difficulties, three companies have made their intentions ever in 2022: Connect Airlines, Linx Airlines and Canada Jetlines.
Canada Jetlines will focus on fulfilling the leave demand, and will initially charter one of the Global Crossing X aircraft for its flights to Florida in the northern season of 2022.

Now according to Jackson Square Aviation (JSA), the company will lease another Airbus A320 and sign a letter of intent for two more
“I am delighted that we have a final agreement on our first aircraft,” said Eddie Doyle, CEO of Canada Jetlines. “Air Canada is well positioned to complete the airline licensing process with an expected launch date in the second quarter of 2022.”
The aircraft, with manufacturer serial number 4,175, was previously owned by Pegasus (TC-DCJ) and Avianca (N417AV). Prior to delivery, the aircraft will be painted in Air Canada colors in Shannon, Ireland, and will include the installation of the new Recaro 3530 seats, with personal electronics and electricals fitted into the seat.
France’s Moment’s Flymingo Box system, which provides a portable wireless IFE for the in-flight entertainment system, will also be installed.
