Canada Jetlines, the new all-Canadian leisure carrier, with travel targeted for summer 2022 to serve several Canadian, US, Caribbean and Mexico destinations from its main hub in Toronto, Ontario, has selected Safran Landing Systems wheels and carbon brakes to equip its Airbus A320 fleet.

Under the long-term agreement, Safran Landing Systems will supply wheels, brakes and carbon heat sinks manufactured in its US-based plant in Walton, Kentucky, while the maintenance and logistics services will be provided by Hope Aero Propeller & Components, Canada's leading wheels & brakes MRO specialist.

Lighter and more durable thanks to its high-performance carbon material and its superior anti-oxidation protective coating, Safran Landing Systems’ A320-family carbon brakes provide airlines with significant savings in terms of maintenance costs. Besides, thanks to their minimal weight, they contribute to the reduction of operators’ fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Safran Landing Systems is the world leader on the A319 and A320 wheels and carbon brakes market, equipping almost 5,000 airplanes to date, or more than 70% of the A320-family fleet worldwide.

Looking at projected growth of 15 aircraft by 2025, Canada Jetlines controls its operating cost to offer its passengers ever more affordable flights.

Brad Warren, Vice President Maintenance Operations at Canada Jetlines, said: “Safran Landing Systems was able to offer the most economical and reliable support package, which will allow Canada Jetlines to execute our growth strategy and focus on delivering the best value to our customers. We are excited for our new long-term partnership with Safran Landing Systems.” 

Nicolas Potier, Executive Vice President, Wheels & Brakes Division, Safran Landing Systems, added: “We are very proud to be Canada Jetlines’ partner in its future success. Safran Landing Systems is committed to supporting the continuously growing leisure market segment in Canada and around the world, with efficient wheels & brakes products and flexible service solutions.”
