“It’s a great honour for us to be chosen as one of the first airports that Canada Jetlines serves and as their Atlantic Canadian centre. We look forward to this new low-fare service boosting inbound tourism and encouraging people who haven’t traditionally travelled by air to do so,” said Joyce Carter, Halifax International Airport Authority president and CEO.

Canada Jetlines aims to become Canada’s first ultra-low cost carrier (ULCC), with plans to operate flights across Canada and provide non-stop service from Canada to the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean.

Stan Gadek, CEO of Jetlines, said: “We are pleased to announce the selection of Halifax Stanfield International Airport as our eastern operations base. Halifax is the leading passenger airport of the Atlantic provinces and will help us connect Canadian travellers with ultra-low fares from coast to coast.”

“Experience has shown that the model of low cost and low fare travel stimulates demand and we look forward to offering passengers more travel options between Atlantic Canada, Hamilton, Ont., and Abbotsford, B.C.,” said Bert van der Stege, chief commercial officer, Halifax International Airport Authority.
