CanJet Question

Sat Jul 29, 2000 2:27 am

Any news on CanJet, Canada's new low fare airline??? They said that they will start flights this summer. Does anyone know when? Also, they said that their website will be ready for reservations in July 2000. Well, it's the 28th and it is still under construction. What's going on with CanJet?

I herd that Augest 1st Canjet was going to start flying. They said YWG would be in September. I don't have a clue about why its taking so long. I wish I knew the answer.

Transport Canada regulations, and the fact that they only now are recieving their first few aircraft (with safety inspections yet to be done) is holding it up. Their flight crews are either in their last few days of training, or finished now as we speak. They are just getting ready now to open up their call centre in New Brunswick. They should be flying by the end of August or maybe early September at the latest.

CanJet's first aircraft arrived YHZ last night about 2000 local (Ex US AirWays B737-200 N236AU). Actually, although it has CanJet's livery it will still carry that registration for a week or two. CanJet received Canadian regulatory approval to commence ticket sales earlier today as well.

I think that their first jet arrived in CYHZ a bit before 2000, July 28. They have already changed the reg to CFGCJ. The aircraft has a white body, with a blue tail that says CANJET. There is a 1-800 number on the body (1-800-809-7777) and it also says CAN JET.com.
