The Halifax-based charter airline CanJet has announced it is immediately suspending all flight operations. According to a statement provided by Stephen Rowe, the companyβs president, CanJet Airlines has decided to halt flight operations in order to determine if they want to continue on with a different financial plan. In the meantime, the company will continue to run, but will not offer any flights. The one Boeing 737 left in its flight will be managed by Air Transat. This past May, CanJet laid off 68 permanent and seasonal flight attendants in addition to 47 pilots.
CanJet was formed in 1999 and merged with Canada3000 in May 2001. Several years ago it signed a contract to offer charter flights on behalf of Transat Tours Canada. That contract was not renewed in April 2014.
