Canjet Getting New Planes?

Sun May 18, 2003 8:54 am

I heard from the grapevine that CanJet is gonna be getting new planes.. maybe airbuses and definetly some big planes to focus more on Transborder and to some sunshine destinations.. can anyone elaborate on this?

What about their old 732's? when is they're lease due?

It sounds like a change in their business plan... will they still be the "Low cost Leader" after this?

They're crazy to abandon the 732 so quickly. They should establish several years of profitable ops and then add newer aircraft (as WJ did).

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

After the slight overexpansion in early 2001, I would expect Canjet to stay on the cautious side. I believe this to be an unfounded rumour as we are all accustomed to by now in the aviation world. They might be looking at available 737 MG's (middle generation) that are littering the desert right now.

To answer you question Hangarcat, CJ's lease with USairways ends in August next year. Maybe not a rumour after all.

Meh, could be, but I didn't think they were going after Airbuses, more like the Boeing 717s or otehr Boeing aircrafts.
