Air Canada to start using charter aircrafts for commercial flights

Posted by Kyro Mitchell on 26 October 2020

Air Canada is putting its fleet of Business Class Jetz charter aircrafts, which are normally reserved for professional sports teams, musical performers and corporations, to good use. The airline has recently announced it will make the aircrafts available to customers for commercial flights.

Each of the airline’s four Airbus A319 Jetz aircrafts is configured with only 58 standard Business Class seats, which equals to less than half the normal number of seats on a regular aircraft, providing an elevated level of comfort and service.

The 58 seats found aboard the A319 Jetz aircraft fill the entire cabin, meaning travellers can expect to find between 1 and 1.2 metres of space between each seat, a far cry from the cramped seating arrangements found on normal aircrafts. The repurposed aircraft also features four facing seats with a table in the middle that can be booked for families and friends travelling together, and complimentary iPads for entertainment.

‘Air Canada is very pleased to offer its customers a unique opportunity to travel like a pro athlete or a VIP and experience our premium Jetz service. Customers booking on a Jetz flight will enjoy such amenities as its all-Business Class seating configuration, upgraded meal service, and shorter boarding and deplaning times,’ said Mark Galardo, Vice President of Network Planning and Alliances at Air Canada.

Customers will be able to book their Jetz flight from October 21, 2020 for travel during the Christmas period between December 12, 2020 and January 6, 2021, with a second schedule for March Break flights currently under development.
