Jetlines plans to service Winnipeg and Kelowna

Canada Jetlines Ltd. has announced it intends to provide ultra-low-fare service from both the Kelowna International Airport (YLW) and the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport (YWG).

Jetlines originally intended to launch in June of 2018, but they are now aiming for a 2019 launch, with an ambitious growth plan that includes multiple destinations within the U.S. Canada Jetlines Image

“We are thrilled to announce that we intend to operate out of more Canadian airports. Our very low fares should encourage people in Winnipeg and Kelowna to travel more often and see more of their own country. Similarly, driven by these low fares, both markets should experience an increase in the number of tourists in their regions. The addition of these airports will extend our reach, giving Jetlines future access to more large populations and strong markets,” stated Jetlines CEO Javier Suarez.


“We are excited to welcome Jetlines to Winnipeg Richardson International Airport,” said Barry Rempel, president and CEO of Winnipeg Airports Authority. “The addition of Jetlines to this market gives travellers another low-cost option to explore all this city and province have to offer.”

Sam Samaddar, airport director, Kelowna International Airport commented, “We are excited to see Canada Jetlines come to Kelowna. Adding another ultra-low-cost-carrier to YLW will give residents more flight options, and visitors more opportunities to experience all that the Okanagan has to offer.”

Jetlines’ ability to service these airports is subject to the completion of the airline licensing process and the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals.
