SparkJet Announces Kanata

ALBUQUERQUE, NM – SparkJet today unveiled its new Canadian operation, marking a milestone in the quest of Albuquerque’s hometown airline to serve all of the Americas. Special introductory routes are available beginning today at and through travel agents. Along with details of the initial destinations it will fly to beginning in December 2013, the name of Canada’s newest airline – SparkKanata – was announced after management released preliminary details to the core pilot group and media earlier this week.

“With the introduction today of Kanata, SparkJet enters Canadas’s growing market on a truly competitive basis,” said Zeke Elias, SparkJet’s Chief Executive Officer, at a news conference in Albuquerque to unveil the new airline. “SparkKanata will leverage the strengths of our extensive, high quality network and operational expertise along with interline agreements with regional airlines all over Canada in order to offer Canadians great value for their travel.” He continued, “The name Kanata comes from the St. Lawrence Iroquoian word kanata, meaning “village” or “settlement”.  We want to be the airline Canadian’s can depend on to keep them safe and efficient.”

Elias concluded, “With travel time at a premium, SparkKanata will combine affordable fares, great service and choice destinations with those benefits offered by SparkJet that are valued most by travellers. We look forward to giving them a warm welcome onboard SparkKanata, Canada’s newest affordable, modern airline.”
