Canada Jetlines Ltd. Says it will offer ultra-low fare service from both John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport and Region of Waterloo International Airport, when it begins flight operations, scheduled for Summer 2018.
“The high demand for lower airfares in the Toronto Metropolitan Area has led to the decision to base our flying in this region,” said CEO Stan Gadek.
“As a result, we are pleased to announce that we have entered into an agreement with the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport and are in active discussions with Region of Waterloo International Airport. The combined service area for these airports includes nearly four million people. This factored significantly in our decision to serve both airports.”
Jetlines plans to offer ultra-low fare service to the major markets in Canada and select destinations in the U.S., Mexico, and the Caribbean.
“Canadians are overpaying for air travel and we intend to change that,” said Gadek. “By offering customers the freedom to select the travel experience they want in addition to getting every day ultra-low fares, Jetlines will change the way that Canadians fly.”
Jetlines plans to operate Boeing 737-800NG aircraft in a 189 seat, all-coach configuration.
The company is planning to begin ticket sales through its website in Spring 2018.
