Air Canada leases two Airbus A330-200 from Qatar Airways

Montreal - Air Canada leases two Airbus A330-200 from Qatar Airways to fill the capacity gap caused by its grounded Boeing 737 MAXs.

Air Canada currently has 24 Boeing 737 MAX 8 in its fleet. Like all others around the world, they are grounded after two fatal crashes of the type in less than half a year.

Boeing's MAX jets are not expected to return to service before August, therefore, Air Canada proceeds to lease additional aircraft to compensate the capacity shortage.

Air Canada also takes over six Airbus A321 from the bankrupt WOW Air and they will be in service from May with the Air Canada subsidiary Rouge.

From June 15, Air Canada will put two Airbus A330-200 into service that are leased from Qatar Airways. The planes will be used for flights from Montreal to Paris and Barcelona.

In June, a Boeing 767-200ER from Omni Air International will also join the fleet to operate flights from Vancouver to Honolulu and Maui.
