“We are pleased to report that several key milestones were achieved in Q1 2023, in February 2023 the Company was proud to introduce Las Vegas as its first international scheduled destination, this was followed in March with a new route from Toronto to Cancun, Mexico. Charter flights and ACMI lease contracts continued to grow throughout the first quarter of 2023 and in March the Company announced it was chosen to provide an aircraft and crew for a 5-month ACMI contract beginning at the end of March, 2023.
“In March, Canada Jetlines announced it was in discussion with Qatar Airways for a potential codeshare agreement where Canada Jetlines would provide service between Toronto and Doha, subject to government approval and completing all applicable agreements between the two airlines. This would offer Canadian travelers access to Qatar Airways’ unparalleled network via Doha to destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Indian Subcontinent and across Asia. The Company is continuing to work through the Canadian government approval process and definitive documentation with Qatar Airways.
“Looking forward, Canada Jetlines has recently announced a number of other charter contracts, including with two Canadian football teams. Canada Jetlines’ 3rd aircraft is expected to be delivered in July 2023 and the Company intends to add up to two additional aircraft to its fleet in 2023 and continue to grow its schedule and Charter/ACMI business.”
