CanJet Airlines Takes Flight in Worldspan

Worldspan and CanJet Airlines, Canada’s Low-Fare Airline, today announced
the launch of CanJet’s inventory and fares for live bookings through the
Worldspan global travel reservations system. The new connectivity enables
CanJet to seize significantly greater distribution opportunities,
resulting in broader travel and itinerary options available to Worldspan
distributors, travel agencies and corporations around the globe.
“Worldspan is committed to supporting CanJet in its goal of achieving
maximum presence among Worldspan’s valued travel agency and corporate
partners worldwide,” said Kevin Ficco, vice president - Airline
Distribution and Business Development for Worldspan. “We are confident
Worldspan’s inclusive distribution strategy for airlines will benefit
CanJet as it does all airline customers, by increasing the carrier’s
revenues while satisfying today’s growing demand for expanded choices and
content.”

“Worldspan supports a unique and important collection of traditional and
online travel distribution outlets,” said Julie N. Gossen, CanJet
executive vice president and chief operating officer. “Their universal
reach, expertise and superior data accuracy are critical as CanJet enters
a phase of aggressive expansion in both our aircraft fleet and destination
centers.”

“With the introduction of CanJet into the Worldspan system, travel
retailers and buyers worldwide will be able to access the airline’s
low-fare offerings from the most comprehensive range of distribution
channels in the world,” said Robert J. Kokonis, Worldspan general manager
- Canada.

Worldspan travel agencies receive a five percent commission on CanJet
bookings made through the Worldspan system.

CanJet Airlines serves ten destinations in Central and Eastern Canada and
the USA, including St. John’s, Deer Lake, Moncton, Halifax, Ottawa,
Montreal, Hamilton, Toronto, New York LaGuardia and Chicago Midway. CanJet
also offers seasonal service to and from St. Petersburg, Sarasota
Bradenton and West Palm Beach, Florida. Beginning in early 2004 and
continuing through 2006, CanJet plans to increase its fleet size to 20
with the acquisition of longer range and more fuel-efficient aircraft
allowing the airline to expand its present route network significantly.
CanJet was recently named Canada’s Best Value Airline by Tourist News
Magazine and was awarded the 2003 Crystal Tourism Award of Excellence for
Transportation by the Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia (TIANS).
