Air Canada: Will the airline offer cheap YVR flights?

A new low-cost airline will offer its first flights to passengers on one of Canada’s busiest airlines this week.

Canada Jetlines will begin operations from its travel hub at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) on Thursday (September 22), with the first scheduled route to Calgary International Airport (YYC).

The Toronto-based carrier will offer a bi-monthly service between the two cities on Thursday and Sunday. Flights from Toronto will leave at 7:55 a.m. (EDT) and land in Calgary at 10:00 a.m. (CST), while Calgary flights to Toronto will leave at 11:40 a.m. (DST) and land at Toronto at 5:20 p.m. (EDT).

From October 13, the airline will increase its services to three flights per week, from Thursday to Sunday.

โ€œCanada Jetlines is proud to launch our initial flights between Toronto to Calgary โ€“ two vibrant Canadian cities with many tourist destinations including Niagara Falls, Lakes Ontario, CN Tower in the East, Banff, Kananaskis, Canmore, Lake Louise and Jasper,โ€ said Eddie Doyle, CEO of Canada Jetlines.

The two cities represent cultural diversity, economic trade and important investment opportunities. We are invited to continue expanding our reach, with the goal of being the airline of choice in Toronto.โ€

Tours start at $99 CAD for a one-way fare.

Will the airline offer YVR flights in the future?

While the Toronto to Calgary service is its first route, Air Canada 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 sunny destinations.”

Entertainment on Air Canada

New carrier has chosen Moment, a technology company that has developed a wide range of information and entertainment solutions for the transportation industry, to outfit its growing fleet of Airbus 320 aircraft.

The FlyMingo Box system will provide a flexible digital in-flight suite with wireless in-flight entertainment options including real-time travel information.

Canada Jetlines states that passengers will be able to easily connect to a local cloud via their browser and access entertainment services directly on their mobile devices.

“It is designed to be a compact, battery-powered or aircraft-powered server, and has the ability to provide a video stream to one hundred passengers at a time,” they explain.
