TORONTO, ONT. (WIVB) - Air Canada is planning to launch a low cost carrier in 2013.
The Toronto Star reports that the airline is moving ahead with plans for the budget airline despite the sluggish Canadian economy.
The report says the new low-cost carrier will be 100 percent owned by Air Canada with a separate management team.
No details are yet available but The Star reports that the goal is to ensure the airline can get more seats on each plane. Air Canada's current configuration on the 767 is 225 seats, while most discount carriers squeeze in 275 seats, a 20 per cent increase.
