Jetsgo files complaint against Air Canada.


Jetsgo has filed a complaint with the Competition Bureau of Canada against Air Canada.

The Canadian start-up airline filed the complaint after Air Canada signed an exclusive agreement with the Quebec government. Under the agreement, the airline would offer discount fares for travellers in the province's more remote regions, while the government would purchase the airline's tickets for its employees and would not subsidise any competing carrier in Quebec.

Jetsgo is planning to argue that government money is being used to subsidise Air Canada's quasi-monopoly, reported Reuters.
