Canadian low-cost carrier Jetsgo is planning to add three nonstop routes from Halifax, Nova Scotia this spring.

The new routes will begin on 5 April with the introduction of daily service to St John’s in Newfoundland. A daily flight to Ottawa will follow on 14 April, while Halifax-Montreal will be added to the carrier’s network on 19 May.

Jetsgo will operate its Fokker 100s on the new routes.

All three city pairs are currently served by Air Canada and CanJet Airlines.

To Montreal, Air Canada dominates with up to four daily nonstop Airbus A310/A320 services, while low-cost carrier CanJet Airlines operates two daily Boeing 737 flights. In the Halifax-Ottawa market, the Canadian major operates up to three daily A319 flights; the low-cost flies up to two daily 737 nonstop services.

Air Canada serves St John’s up to four times a day, with either A319s, A320s or Boeing 767-300 aircraft, and CanJet operates up to two daily 737 services on the city pair. Halifax-St John’s is also served by WestJet Airlines, which operates a four-weekly 737-700 nonstop service.

Jetsgo says it will announce further “schedule improvements” in the coming weeks.
