The partnership was announced alongside the unveiling of Canada Jetlines’ first aircraft and the announcement of Toronto Pearson International Airport as its first travel hub. The airline is due to launch its first services in summer 2022, with plans to operate services across North America with 15 aircraft by 2025.
Lucy Hathaway, Chief Sales Officer at Allianz Global Assistance, expressed her enthusiasm for the partnership, adding: “We’re here to ensure travellers have easy access to the right protection and assistance – anywhere their adventures take them.”
Allianz Global Assistance announced a similar deal with Canadian regional airline Porter Airlines in December 2021, which enabled the insurer to provide a range of insurance plans via Porter’s website.
“Partnering with Allianz Global Assistance will help Canada Jetlines’ guests to plan with confidence and ease, be it a weekend trip or the family vacation of their dreams,” said Duncan Bureau, Chief Commercial Officer at Canada Jetlines.
