Jetlines, is a new Canadian ultra-low-cost airline headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario and operates flights to Calgary and Vancouver at low prices.

“We are looking forward to expand our international network, as the U.S. is a top market for Canadian travelers,” Eddy Doyle, President and Chief Executive Officer of the airline reported in a recent statement. “With the winter months fast approaching, we know sun destinations will be a priority for leisure travel and we intend to announce our first international destination later this month.”

The goal of the airline is to operate 15 jets out of Toronto and Vancouver before 2025. Jetlines says it expects quick growth over the next few years, flying to sun destinations in the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
