Canada Jetlines Ltd. has announced it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) for two Boeing 737-800NG aircraft with a major U.S. based aircraft leasing firm for delivery in April 2018.

"This agreement marks an important step in securing our aircraft fleet to become Canada's first Ultra-Low Cost Carrier (ULCC)," Jetlines CEO Stan Gadek said. "The 737-800NG is the aircraft of choice for ULCCs world-wide and will give Jetlines the ability to offer Canadians ultra-low fares to points in Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and the Caribbean."

Jetlines plans to operate modern Boeing 737-800NG aircraft in a 189 seat, all-coach configuration. Jetlines maintains Canadians deserve to have affordable low fares with the added convenience of operating from secondary airports. Additional services for baggage, seat selection and onboard beverages will be available to customers for an additional charge.

Jetlines is planning to begin ticket sales through its website www.jetlines.ca in Spring 2018 and targeting start of flight operations for Summer 2018, subject to government approval.

"Canadians are paying far too much for air travel and we intend to change that when we take to the skies," Gadek said. "These aircraft are the perfect choice and will bring affordable ticket prices to Canada."

Gadek and executive chairman Mark Morabito will address the media today at a press event in Toronto.
