Low-cost carrier Canada Jetlines (JETMF) took delivery of its first Airbus A320-200 aircraft from Irish lessor Jackson Square Aviation (JSA). Canada Jetlines (JETMF) has selected the Airbus A320 as its fleet standard. The Vancouver-based carrier plans to expand its fleet to 15 A320 aircraft by 2025.
“This is a milestone day for our team as we get to witness the inception of our branded fleet, with the delivery of our first aircraft,” said Brad Warren, VP Maintenance Operations for Canada Jetlines (JETMF).
Canada Jetlines’ (JETMF) newly leased A320-200 aircraft, registered as C-GCJL, is approximately 12 years old. According to Planespotters.net, the aircraft was initially leased to Avianca (AVHOQ), but later belonged to Pegasus.

Canada Jetlines (JETMF) was founded in 2013. Since then, the carrier has experienced near-constant management changes and has struggled to launch operations. Historically the airline was created to provide ultra-low-cost services to destinations in the United States, Caribbean, and Mexico.
Now the airline plans to launch commercial operations in spring 2022. However, neither destinations nor flight schedules have been disclosed.
“We are excited to be a part of Canada Jetlines’ (JETMF) journey to launch operations as Canada’s newest charter airline, and are delighted to welcome the airline as our newest customer,” said John Yanney, JSA Head of Americas Marketing & OEM Relations.
