Tango Airbus A320-211, from LCC to a Fare structure. Yesterday an Airline, Today an Air Canada low fare structure.
Air Canada Tango was a low-cost branch of Air Canada, which was established in 2001 to offer no-frills service on some of Air Canada's routes and to reduce operating costs at the struggling main company. Based in Toronto, Tango operated on the major longer-distance Canadian routes between cities such as Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver, as well as to some holiday destinations in the USA such as Fort Lauderdale and Tampa and Mexico City.
The airline's name is short for "Tan and Go", which is in reference to the southern winter destinations that were initially planned to be served.
The fleet of Air Canada Tango consisted of up to 13 Airbus A320 and (from 2002) up to 6 Boeing 737-200.
Air Canada Tango aircraft were configured in a full economy class layout rather than with a business class section as on regular Air Canada aircraft and featured a distinctive purple colour scheme.
The Tango brand lasted from to 2004 and was discontinued together with ZIP airlines (who was using ex-Canadian Airlines International 737-200)
