Chartright addresses demand in Canada’s expanding market
Expansion is being achieved in a number of ways by Chartright; it has added two Bombardier aircraft to its Toronto-based fleet and has committed to the expansion of its Region of Waterloo International airport FBO.

Aircraft management, maintenance and charter company Chartright Air Group has added two Bombardier aircraft to its fleet. The Global 5500 and Challenger 650 will be based at Toronto Pearson International airport in Canada. This follows the purchase of two Global 750s earlier in the year.

“New additions to the existing Chartright fleet will help us meet demand in the business jet market,” says president Adam Keller. “Global business travel has undergone moderate growth in 2021, a positive trend compared to the previous year. With Covid-19, travel patterns have changed. The combination of business and leisure travel with flexible working has created the environment for on demand travel growth. The team at Chartright is delighted to welcome these new aircraft, built by Bombardier, as part of its managed fleet. For our clients it will be a great opportunity to fly privately to many destinations on the best business jets in their class.”

The company is also committed to upgrading its Region of Waterloo International airport FBO in Kitchener, Ontario. The improved facility will include a heated hangar capable of supporting private and commercial aircraft of any size, and the team will provide aircraft maintenance, grooming, de-icing, refuelling and charter services. It will start operating at full capacity in the autumn of 2022.

Known as Canada's ‘Silicon Valley’, the Region of Waterloo boasts the second largest number of start-ups in North America and is poised for continued growth. Its population of young and affluent individuals is expected to grow to 742,000 by 2031. At the same time, nearby Toronto Pearson airport could see passenger movements increase to 70 million per year, which will test its capacity.

The Region of Waterloo International Airport is a member of the Southern Ontario Airport Network, an organisation created to address these future capacity constraints in southern Ontario.

“Our new and modern FBO is a needed addition to the region’s airport infrastructure”, adds Keller. “The facility will offer increased capacity and a wide range of enhanced services for private jets as well as cargo handling and air ambulance support services. As the premier provider of aircraft management service in the Region of Waterloo and Canada's number one provider of private jet charter service, we are thrilled to participate in the growth of the region.”
