Canada Jetlines says it has submitted operations manuals to Transport Canada to receive its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) in preparation for first flight in 2019.
Weekly updates have been provided to the principal operations inspector and the new ultra low-cost carrier (ULCC) has completed the amendment of required manuals to Airbus A320 operations and provided these documents to the regulatory authority.
The company said it will now focus on completing the second milestone through the amendment to training programs and completion of the contracts required for Airbus training. The final milestone will be achieved through conducting interviews, hiring and the training of all staff to prepare for aircraft delivery in the second quarter of 2019.
Canada Jetlines is set to become Canada’s first true ULCC with plans to operate flights across Canada and provide non-stop service from Canada to the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean.
It plans to commence operations with the Airbus A320 fleet, and has been granted an exemption from the government of Canada that will permit it to conduct domestic air services while having up to 49 per cent foreign voting interests.
