In January 2001, a newly-merged carrier called Air Canada Regional Inc. took to the skies. A wholly-owned subsidiary of Air Canada, this company combined the individual strengths of the four regional airline brands – AirBC, Air Nova, Air Ontario, and Canadian Regional. The challenging and complex process of consolidating these four companies was completed in 2002. This exciting achievement was marked with the launch of a new name and brand – Air Canada Jazz.

Jazz is one of the largest regional airlines in the world, serving 85 destinations in Canada and the United States, and providing customers with seamless connections to the worldwide networks of Air Canada and the Star Alliance. With the most flights to the most communities in Canada, Jazz is the airline that brings together family, friends and business.

They operate more flights and fly to more Canadian destinations than any other carrier. They are the only airline serving ten provinces and two territories. As an integral part of Air Canada’s strategy and North American market presence, Jazz provides service to and from many smaller communities in Canada and the United States, as well as larger centres at off-peak times as a complement to Air Canada’s schedule.

Jazz is not a typical airline. They have a commercial agreement with Air Canada that is the core of their business. Under the Capacity Purchase Agreement (CPA), Air Canada purchases substantially all of Jazz’s seat capacity based on predetermined rates. In reality, they are a contract carrier for Air Canada and operate their flights on their behalf. The CPA provides commercial flexibility and connecting network traffic to Air Canada, while significantly reducing Jazz’s financial and business risks.



Jazz offers private charters throughout North America for corporate, government, special interest groups and individuals who enjoy travelling on their own schedule.

They possess a highly skilled work force trained in the operation of one of the world’s largest fleets of regional aircraft. Opportunities exist in the areas of consulting, new capacity purchase agreements or extended charter agreements with other airlines, both inside and outside of North America.
