This morning I received a phone call from CanJet President Stephen Rowe. Unfortunately, the company will be ceasing flight operations effective today, September 1, 2015. Mr. Rowe indicated that a representative from CanJet’s HR department will be contacting each of you. Attached is the memo that has been posted on mycanjet.ca
Mr. Rowe also explained that the company was not profitable and could not sustain the losses mounting each month. He also said that they were aggressively searching for new flying opportunities but they hadn’t found the right fit as of yet. He said they will continue to look for opportunities.
While I appreciated Mr. Rowe’s call this morning, and his praise for the professionalism and dedication of the CanJet pilots, the decision to shut down the company with less than a day's notice is certainly a major disappointment — especially for the women and men who built this airline. Words alone cannot express our frustration with the situation, and we will encourage the HR department to work with each of you fairly as the carrier winds down. We are in the process of ascertaining other flying opportunities at ALPA carriers, and will keep you informed as we learn more.
In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
