Jetlines poised for launch

A new discount airline, Jetlines, could launch in Western Canada. The airline is owned by a group of aviation veterans; David Solloway will serve as Jetlines’ chief commercial officer.

The company, which intends to model its airline on Ryanair and Allegiant, has negotiated landing slots at airports in Western Canada and intends to focus on routes that are either not served, underserved or only served through a connection.

Although fares will be kept more than 40% cheaper than full-service rivals, the airline will charge passengers extra fees for checked bags and seat selections.

The company has already applied for an airline licence to operate large aircraft in Canada and hopes to offer select flights as early as next fall.
