History[edit]

Chorus Aviation Inc. has its roots in Jazz Air Income Fund, which was established in 2005 as an income trust in Canada.[2] The purpose of the income trust was to serve as the parent company for Jazz Aviation LP, a regional airline based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and a subsidiary of the trust. Jazz Aviation LP, formerly known as Jazz Air, was originally founded in 2001 when Air Canada (the country's largest airline) decided to spin off its regional operations into a separate entity. As a result, Jazz Aviation LP became a regional feeder airline for Air Canada, operating under the brand name "Air Canada Jazz." The airline played a crucial role in providing regional air travel services, connecting smaller communities to larger hubs within Canada and the United States.[3] In 2010, the income trust structure was converted into a corporation, and the entity was renamed Chorus Aviation Inc. This conversion was in response to changes in Canadian tax laws, which affected the viability of the income trust model.[4] As Chorus Aviation Inc., the company continued its operations as a regional airline and expanded its business to include various aviation-related services. The company operates through two main segments: Regional Aviation Services and Regional Aircraft Leasing, offering a wide range of aviation solutions in both the United States and Canada.[5]
