Canada Jetlines (AU, Toronto Pearson) will place two of its A320-200s with an unspecified but "prominent European" operator for six months during the coming northern summer season.

The Canadian carrier said the first of the pair will begin operating in Europe in April 2024 for the full six months. The other aircraft will be deployed only for the peak season, starting in June for three months.

"In January, we announced the expansion of our fleet to six aircraft. The utilisation of these planes is widely needed in Europe during their busy season. The two planes will return to Canada for our busy fall/winter travel period to leisure destinations," Chief Executive Eddy Doyle explained.

The airline did not respond to ch-aviation's request for added details.

Canada Jetlines currently operates three A320-200s, according to the ch-aviation fleets module. It has a commitment for a further three of the type, one from Aviation Capital Group and two from CMB Financial Leasing, due in the first and second quarters of 2024.
