CanJet Airlines began service on 5 September in Eastern Canada with two Boeing 737-200s. It expects to increase its fleet to six aircraft by the end of the year. The Halifax-based carrier's focus will be flights between Halifax, Toronto, Ottawa and Winnipeg, with Montreal being added on 25 September. CanJet joins a growing list of airlines - including WestJet, Canada 3000 and Royal Airlines - that have expanded operations since flag carrier Air Canada took over former rival Canadian Airlines. Air Canada is itself retaining Canadian's regional airline operation after putting it up for sale but failing to attract a buyer.
