Air Canada offers rare opportunity to fly on its business class aircraft


TORONTO – Air Canada offers a rare opportunity for people to fly their fleet of business class aircraft. The airline has said it will use its four Airbus 319 Jetz jets, configured with just 58 seats in business class and no economy class, on popular routes this winter.

Air Canada normally uses these planes for professional sports teams, popular touring musical groups and corporate customers on a charter basis.

The airline said that due to current pandemic restrictions, the planes are now available for commercial use.

“Air Canada is very pleased to offer its customers a unique opportunity to travel like a professional athlete or a VIP and to enjoy our premium Jetz service,” Air Canada said in a press release Wednesday.

The planes even include four business class seats that all face each other with a table in between, which can be reserved by a family.

Passengers will be able to book business class flights from October 21 to travel during the Christmas period, which is between December 12 and January 6.

Another schedule for spring break flights is currently being planned, Air Canada said.

Luxury flights will depart from Toronto with nonstop travel to Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Fort Myers, Barbados, Cancun, Kelowna and Vancouver.

There will also be non-stop flights from Vancouver to Phoenix, Palm Springs and Puerto Vallarta. From Montreal, there are flights to Fort Lauderdale and Barbados.

Air Canada did not say whether tickets for these flights would be more expensive.

While special flights and escape from winter conditions can be tempting, the Canadian government still advises against non-essential travel.

People traveling outside of the country must self-isolate for 14 days upon their return to Canada.
