CanJet Airlines has been advised by Transport Canada that it has met all the regulatory requirements and will be issued its Operating Certificate, June 19th.
“This is a key and most critical piece of the puzzle for re-launching the low cost discount carrier,” states IMP’s Julie Gossen, Executive VP and COO, Commercial Aviation. “Based on the tremendous consumer response to CanJet, I am confident the public is anxious to welcome the competition we will provide.”
CanJet Airlines will commence service between Toronto, Halifax and St. John’s this Thursday, June 20. Montreal and Ottawa will be added to the CanJet route network on June 27 and service to Moncton will begin on July 4. Ms. Gossen stated, “CanJet will operate a fleet of four Boeing 737-200 series, 120 passenger aircraft on its route network in central and eastern Canada. This airplane, the world’s largest selling and most popular commercial airliner ever flown, will receive positive consumer acceptance and will play a large part in the airline’s anticipated success.”
CanJet Airlines, eastern Canada’s original low-cost discount airline, is a division of I.M.P. Group Limited, Halifax, Nova Scotia, one of Canada’s largest aviation and aerospace companies.
