Air Canada Jazz
Established in 2001, Air Canada Jazz was formed from the consolidation of the Air Canada connector carriers Air BC, Air Nova, Air Ontario and Canadian Regional Airlines shortly after the successful takeover of Canadian Airlines by Air Canada. As of April 2007, it employed 4,913 people

The airline successfully launched an initial public offering (IPO) in February 2006 units of the income trust trade as JAZ.UN.

In February 2006, Air Canada announced that City Centre Aviation Limited (CCAL) had served a 30-day termination notice for Jazz's month-to-month lease of terminal space at Toronto City Centre Airport. The Toronto Port Authority itself does not control any significant terminal space at the airport, but it extended permission for Jazz to continue using the airport; however, since the airline could not find terminal space, they canceled service to the airport at the end of February 2006. CCAL had been bought by REGCO Holdings, (now Porter Aviation Holdings), the owners of Porter Airlines, which launched service from the airport later that year.

In 2006, ACE Aviation Holdings sold off all of their Air Canada Jazz assets. Air Canada Jazz is now an independent company known as Jazz Air Income Fund.

In August 2008, Air Canada Jazz removed all life jackets from its aircraft in order to lower fuel costs. According to the airline, passengers are to use floating seat cushions in the event of an emergency over water. The airline also stated that an event of a water landing on the regional airline routes was almost zero, as there is no operation over great bodies of water except for the great lakes and that in all circumstances, the airline always remains within 50 nautical miles from land, as stipulated in the law, which removes the obligation from carrying any flotation devices.

The aircraft was the first of 15 CRJ 705 and 15 CRJ 200 aircraft ordered in September 2004. The new aircraft undertook its first revenue earning flight on June 1, 2005 from Calgarymarker to Houstonmarker. In mid-2006, the last Air Canada Bombardier CRJ 100 was transferred to Air Canada Jazz.

It has been rumoured that Jazz will be operating at least 10 Bombardier Dash 8 Series 400 (known as Q-400) by mid 2011. 10 CRJ 100 aircraft will also be removed from the fleet by June 2010.


On May 20, 2007, Air Canada Jazz Flight 8911, which originated in Monctonmarker, New Brunswickmarker, experienced the collapse of the main landing gear of its 50-seat Bombardier CRJ-100 as the plane turned from the runway onto the taxiway after landing at Toronto Pearson International Airportmarker. There were no injuries reported.

On September 18, 2008, an Air Canada Airbus A340 while taxiing out of the terminal, clipped the horizontal stabilizer of an Air Canada Jazz Dash 8 aircraft, at Vancouver International Airport. The Airbus, carrying about 300 passengers, was bound for Hong Kongmarker and the Dash 8, carrying about 40 people, for Castlegar, British Columbiamarker. Both aircraft sustained minor damage and there was "no threat to the passengers or crews."
