From Canjet's website:

CanJet, Canada’s Low-Fare Airline, has launched a new promotion, “CanJet Deals”, with an exciting 2 fly for the price of 1 offer on CanJet tickets. This exclusive offer is in conjunction with the sign up of a no-fee MasterCard® issuer credit card and features a 50% off on first booking of 2 roundtrip CanJet tickets to anywhere in Canada or the U.S. This 2 for 1 offer is valid for booking until October 31st 2006 and travel must be completed by December 15, 2006 (blackout periods will apply).

[note: this sounds similar to JetsGo's discounts on paired bookings except this requires signing a credit card, not a great idea I think.]

From WestJet's website:

WestJet Selects Swissport for Toronto Ground Handling Contract

APR 19, 2006 - 08:30 ET

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - April 19, 2006) - WestJet (TSX:WJA) today announced that Swissport will assume its ground handling contract for the airline at Toronto Pearson International Airport effective immediately. Swissport will be responsible for all aircraft loading and baggage handling at WestJet's second largest operation with approximately 290 scheduled departures per week. Swissport currently handles WestJet's ground operations in Vancouver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Honolulu.

From Air Canada's website:

From the Sunwing website:

AM was supposed to announce new destinations this year, specifically PHL, DTW and YYZ. However, nothing has been announced. Moreover, the YYZ flights were already loaded in the reservation system, but they do not appear anymore.

AM has received two brand new 772ER's and one is already doing revenue flights to MAD, CDG and GRU. Supposedly TIJ-NGO will be launched this summer with a 772ER.

The first of several 738W's will be delivered to AM soon and flights to ATL and JFK will be done with 738W's mostly.

For the summer, MEX-JFK is going to be 21x weekly (or is the third frequency only for the weekends?).



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).
