    1. Hello, Bonjour!

      As we embark on a new year and adjust our daily lives during the pandemic, I hope you are staying healthy and safe.  The month of February will see the re-introduction of the Boeing 737 MAX8 into our operations and we are very excited to see it fly once again.  Below are a few photos when I had the pleasure of flying onboard from London, England -> Halifax -> Toronto a few years ago.  Our virtual schedules will be updated and reflect the initial routes it will be operating out of Toronto to Edmonton, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa and Winnipeg.

      I invite you to start up and post your own blog!  It is very simple and easy!  My team will also be contributing and will be focused on their own projects and travel experiences.  We hope this blog feature will provide you with the look and feel of an in-flight magazine and allow you to share your passion in aviation with the world.

      Until next time,

      - Michael
