Air Canada Jazz

From Academic Kids

Air Canada Jazz is Air Canada's largest regional carrier. The regional carrier is wholly owned by Air Canada and it flies to destinations in Canada and the United States using the De Havilland Canada Dash 8 and Bombardier Canadair Regional Jet aircraft.

In February 2005, Air Canada announced that it would shift much of its flying from its own mainline and regional jets to Air Canada Jazz's planes in cities across Canada and the U.S. The move was controversial, since it essentially shifted high paying Air Canada jobs to lower wage Jazz positions. The former Air Canada employees will be laid off and need to reapply for their former jobs with Air Canada Jazz. In Prince Edward Island, on April 26, 2005, an arbitrator ruled that former Jazz employers could retain their jobs when the transition occurs, but they will face a 17.6% wage cut, bringing their pay in line with the lower Jazz rate.

The switch to Jazz service means the elimination of Air Canada jet flights to Charlottetown, Fredericton, Saint John, Moncton, Québec City, Regina, Saskatoon, Thunder Bay, and Whitehorse. However, customers in most markets will likely not see a change in service, since Air Canada and Air Canada Jazz already operate identical Canadair Regional Jet aircraft in most markets. The most significant change will be the loss of Airbus A320 and Airbus A319 flights (mid-size, dual-class passenger jets seating between 120-140 passengers) to Charlottetown, Moncton, Québec City, Regina, Saskatoon, Thunder Bay, and Whitehorse.

In June 2005, the airline announced a new destination: Hamilton, Ontario, with service from Montreal and Ottawa.
