Video Clip: Canada Jetlines announces arrival of first A320
Leisure carrier Canada Jetlines has announced the arrival of its first A320 at Region of Waterloo International Airport (YKF) in Canada. On February 26, the aircraft flew in from Shannon, Ireland where it underwent painting and interior refurbishing.
“This is a very special day for Canada Jetlines,” said Eddy Doyle, CEO of Canada Jetlines. “I am very proud of the hard work completed by the entire Canada Jetlines team which made this day possible. The amazing aircraft livery and interior represent the new, fun, and exciting Canada Jetlines. This is an important milestone for our airline as we continue on the path to obtain our Air Operator Certificate from Transport Canada. We are looking forward to operating our first revenue flights and welcoming our first guests following the receipt of regulatory approvals.”
The flight was operated by Captain Randy Howe, Canada Jetlines’ Chief Pilot, and Captain Colin Forrest. Both pilots recently completed the Canada Jetlines’ A320 pilot training and simulator check ride monitored by Transport Canada.
Jetlines will operate a fleet of A320s targeting a start in 2022, subject to Transport Canada approval. The Canadian carrier was created to provide passengers more choice when travel to destinations within the U.S., Caribbean, and Mexico.
