Charter airline may be moving to restart scheduled flights through licences to fly from Canada to Europe as well as Antigua and Barbuda, Costa Rica and Barbados.
IMP Group, the parent company of the Halifax-based charter airline, has secured several large aircraft licences, according to a report in the National Post. CanJet currently operates as a charter airline – flying about 50 services a week – by wet-leasing its B737 aircraft and crew to Transat AT. But Transat’s five-year agreement with CanJet expires on April 30, 2014, and the tour operator is reported to be considering whether to buy its own fleet of B737s. CanJet operated scheduled flights between Canada and the US until 2006, when it switched to charter flights. A Canadian Transportation Agency official told the newspaper that the licences would let CanJet operate the services under its own name, although the carrier could apply to wet-lease its planes or to set up a code-share.Source: routesnews, Piers Evans
