Thomas Cook Airlines Canada launches operations

Jazz Air (Halifax) as planned yesterday (November 5) officially launched its flight services agreement with Thomas Cook Canada Inc. Early morning flights departed from Toronto (Pearson) to Montego Bay, Jamaica and Cancun, Mexico.

The five-year flight services agreement, signed earlier this year, has Jazz operating six Boeing 757-200 aircraft on behalf of Thomas Cook (Canada).  The service will operate to various sun destinations in the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America from Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax under the Thomas Cook (Canada) brand.  Flights will operate during the winter season, November to April, and will feature several product enhancements developed jointly by Jazz, Thomas Cook and its Sunquest Division.

Jazz took delivery of the first two Boeing 757-200 aircraft earlier this week and will see four more aircraft arrive in December at which time service from Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax will commence.  The aircraft are leased to Jazz Air LP from Thomas Cook Airlines Ltd.
