Air Canada future plans

Canadian Star Alliance carrier Air Canada has unveiled a fleet plan providing for international growth at both the mainline operation and its new low-cost leisure airline to be launched in 2013.

Air Canada will add two new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in order to pursue strategic growth opportunities for its international network.  With the addition of these two aircraft, to be delivered in June and September 2013, the airline’s Boeing 777 fleet will consist of 20 aircraft, comprising the latest generation of 300ER and 200LR models.  Air Canada currently operates 56 wide-body aircraft and 149 single aisle planes.

Details of the new leisure carrier have not been announced except that 200 pilots and cabin crew will be employed.  The airline says it is taking on 900 staff for its mainline activities over the next 12 months. www.aircanada.com
