Jetlines will begin flying from its travel hub at Toronto Pearson International Airport, with twice-weekly connections from Toronto to Calgary. Return flights will operate on Thursdays and Sundays, the country’s newest ultra-low-cost airline announced Friday.
The launch of Canada Jetlines is another milestone marking the recovery in the travel and tourism sectorsaid Bob Sartor, president and CEO of the Calgary Airport Authority.
From $99 to $254 one way
On Friday, the site showed a minimum fare of $99 for a Calgary-Toronto one-way ticket and a maximum of $254, depending on the services selected.
Ticket changes, lower cost cancellation and checked baggage are included in the higher fares.
Jetlines flights are carried out on Airbus A320, an aircraft with a capacity of 174 seats.
The company plans to have 15 such aircraft by 2025.
Jetlines board member Ravinder Minhas said the carrier was able to
get airplanes at an unbeatable priceand that it would soon be able to offer flights to sun destinations, and with comparatively more affordable fares.
The young company had planned, earlier this year, to offer flights to connect Toronto to Winnipeg, Manitoba, and Toronto to Moncton, New Brunswick, but this project was postponed while waiting to obtain a certificate of aerial operation for this purpose.
