A new low-cost airline will offer its first flights to air passengers on one of Canada’s busiest routes this week.
Canada Jetlines will begin operations from its travel hub at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) on Thursday, September 22, with its first scheduled route to Calgary International Airport (YYC).
The Toronto-based carrier will offer twice-weekly service between the two cities on Thursdays and Sundays. Flights departing Toronto will depart at 7:55 a.m. (EDT) and land in Calgary at 10:00 a.m. (MDT), while flights from Calgary to Toronto will depart at 11:40 a.m. (MDT) and land in Toronto at 5:00 p.m. 20 a.m. (EDT).
From October 13, the airline will increase its service to three flights per week, from Thursday to Sunday.
“Canada Jetlines is proud to launch its first flights between Toronto and Calgary – two vibrant Canadian cities with many tourist destinations including Niagara Falls, Ontario Lakes and the CN Tower to the east, and Banff, Kananaskis , Canmore, Lake Louise, Jasper, and the Rocky Mountains to the west,” said Canada Jetlines CEO Eddy Doyle.
“Both cities represent cultural diversity, economic trade and significant investment opportunities. We are encouraged to continue to expand our reach, with the goal of being Toronto’s preferred airline. »
Flights start at $99 CAD for a one-way fare.
Will the airline offer YVR flights in the future?
Although the Toronto-Calgary service is its first route, Canada Jetlines says Canadians should expect “more routes to exciting destinations to be announced soon.”
Previously, the leisure airline said it also plans to offer “affordable travel with a variety of travel options, including popular sun destinations”.

Entertainment on Canada Jetlines
The new carrier has chosen Moment, a technology company that has developed a wide range of infotainment solutions in the transportation industry, to equip its growing fleet of Airbus 320 aircraft.
The “Flymingo Box” system will offer a flexible, aircraft-powered digital suite with wireless in-flight entertainment options, including real-time travel information.
Canada Jetlines says passengers will be able to easily connect to a local cloud through their browser and access entertainment services directly on their mobile devices.
“Designed as a compact, battery-powered or aircraft-powered server, the system has the capacity to provide video streaming to 100 passengers simultaneously,” they explain.
