An international aircraft charter operation has taken flight in Canada. Corporate Airlink Ltd. was originally founded in 1996 as a corporate aircraft management and charter service. With 15 employees and two Cessna Citation Excels and one Cessna Citation CJ1, the firm maintains a domestic operation at its head office in Mississauga -- adjacent to Lester B. Pearson International Airport -- and has regional support/operations centers at both the Hamilton and Kitchener, Ontario, airports. Corporate Airlink Ltd.ís current fleet of small- and medium-sized business aircraft was recently expanded with the addition of a BD-700 Global Express, which now allows the company to offer long-range international services. The aircraft owner awarded management and operation of this 12-passenger jet to Corporate Airlink, and, under this agreement, the operator provides the air crew, operational and administrative support and maintenance for the aircraft. Based at Pearson, this is the first Global Express to receive commercial operational certification by Transport Canada. For private operations, the aircraft has been registered under the Canadian Business Aviation Associationís POC (Private Operations Certificate -- the next evolution to the CAR 604).
