According to a series of Feb. 1 decisions mde by the CTA, the leisure carrier will be allowed to operate scheduled international service to the European community and its member states, as well as Mexico, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Antigua and Barbuda and Saint Lucia.
The agency said it is satisfied that Canada Jetlines meets all of the applicable conditions of the Canada Transportation Act.
The CTA is also confident that Canada Jetlines will comply with the relevant terms of the applicable agreements with the countries concerned.

The sun route, which will start with two flights per week and gradually increase in frequency, is scheduled to begin in March 2023. Tickets are now on sale.
Canada Jetlines will operate the route with its growing fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft, including its recently announced second aircraft which was delivered and entered service in December 2022.
Cancun joins other new destinations in Canada Jetlines’ growing schedule, including Vancouver, Las Vegas, and Melbourne/Orlando, Florida.
