ONTARIO, CANADA — Canada's startup airline Canada Jetlines has signed a lease agreement with Chinese CCB leasing for its second Airbus A320 aircraft. The aircraft is expected to join the new airline's fleet by November 30, 2022.

"I am pleased that we have a definitive agreement for our second aircraft," stated Canada Jetlines CEO, Eddy Doyle. "The Airbus A320 is a fuel-efficient, narrow-body framework that supports a high-density seat configuration. Canada Jetlines completed its licensing process last August and will make its inaugural flight on September 22, 2022, and will be using the aircraft to expand its network in time for the upcoming winter travel season."

Kevin Mi, Global Head of Aviation for CCB Leasing, commented, "We are excited about our relationship with Canada Jetlines and the innovative offering that they are bringing to the Canadian aviation market."

The aircraft is an Airbus A320-200, listed under the manufacturer’s serial number #5995, equipped with two CFM56-5B4/3 engines. The aircraft cabin will be configured with the new Recaro 3530 seats, in-seat USB power, and personal electronic device holder. The airline will also install the Flymingo Box system, which offers an enhanced passenger experience through its wireless inflight entertainment.
