Jetlines CEO Stan Gadek said, “This agreement marks an important step in securing our aircraft fleet to become Canada’s first ultra-low cost carrier (ULCC). The 737-800NG is the aircraft of choice for ULCCs worldwide and will give Jetlines the ability to offer Canadians ultra-low fares to points in Canada, the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean.”
Jetlines plans to operate modern Boeing 737-800NG aircraft in a 189 seat, all-coach configuration. Jetlines believes that Canadians deserve to have affordable low fares with the added convenience of operating from secondary airports. Additional services for baggage, seat selection and onboard beverages will be available to customers for an additional charge.
Gadek said, “Canadians are paying far too much for air travel and we intend to change that when we take to the skies. These aircraft are the perfect choice and will bring affordable ticket prices to Canada.”
