We were recently invited for an airport tour of the Air Canada Jetz charter aircraft and a closer look at Air Canada Vacations’ Jetz Experience. Here are some thoughts from our very own Darlene Wipp:
1. What was your first impression of Air Canada Jetz?
I loved the transformation of the Airbus A319 to 58 Business Class seats. The seating is very spacious and makes boarding and deplaning very quick. There is some small group seating available where 4 travellers can sit facing each other with a small table in the middle. It’s definitely luxurious!
2. The Air Canada Vacations Jetz Experience seems quite different from a typical getaway. Who would it appeal to?
I feel it will appeal to many that want to experience a more luxury personalized experience with many added perks. In fact, Air Canada Jetz is a charter airplane that operates a premium business service for corporate clients and professional sports teams. There is certainly an aura about it (they regularly fly the Toronto Raptors). The Jetz Experience is certainly an upscale travel experience with a focus on luxury. It is perfect for couples, families, and even small groups.
3.Are there extra perks included with this style of vacation?
Yes, it all begins at the airport with access to Maple Leaf Lounges, privileged boarding gates, and priority check-in, plus two checked bags. The flight experience is unique and special. When you arrive at your vacation destination, there are private transfers to and from your hotel or resort. Your hotel or resort stay also provides value-added components like room upgrades, complimentary services, and exclusive discounts. It really is the ultimate experience!
4.Which destinations can you travel to with Jetz?
From Toronto, Air Canada Jetz flies to Barbados & Cancun; from Vancouver, they fly to Puerto Vallarta on select dates in December. Another great option is to charter the aircraft for private one-of-a-kind groups for Weddings, Sports or Corporate Conference/Meetings.
5. Are COVID-19 measures in place to provide peace of mind for travellers?
Yes, travel is different with many COVID-19 measures in place. Air Canada implemented its “Clean Care Program” earlier this year to ensure the highest standards of safety and cleanliness for travel. Toronto Pearson Airport is also a leader in responding to COIVD-19 with its “Healthy Airport” program. Destination airports and hotels have also implemented extensive COVID-19 measures. In addition, travellers who book the Jetz Experience will benefit from the COVID-19 coverage & assistance plan offered by Allianz Global Assistance at no additional cost.
