Canada Jetlines has signed a contract to provide aircraft and crew to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for their regular season games.
The contract will see Canada Jetlines fly the team to select away games during the 2023 season. This represents the second such agreement with the first being the previously announced agreement with the Ottawa Redblacks.
"Canada Jetlines is very pleased to have been selected for this contract with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, an iconic Canadian Sports Franchise with a rich history dating back to 1869. We are particularly excited about this relationship as we share some of the same qualities with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats such as teamwork, grit and passion. Canada Jetlines has seen continuous growth in demand for its Charter and ACMI (Aircraft Crew Maintenance and Insurance) business which complements our schedule service to leisure destinations,” said Canada Jetlines’ Chief Executive Officer and President, Eddy Doyle.
“We are thrilled to work with Canada Jetlines as the Tiger-Cats charter airline partner in 2023,” noted Matt Afinec, president & COO, Hamilton Sports Group. “Reliability, convenience and comfort of our players is of the utmost importance and we’re excited to see this partnership in action throughout the upcoming season.”
Canada Jetlines says it has completed approximately 150 charter and ACMI flights already since the beginning of 2023 and expects to perform several additional charter flights in the coming months.
