About Jazz Aviation LP
Jazz Aviation LP (“Jazz”) is wholly owned by Chorus Aviation Inc., and has a strong history in Canadian aviation with its roots going back to the 1930s. Jazz’s predecessors have generated some of the strongest operational and financial results in the North American aviation industry.
Under a capacity purchase agreement with Air Canada, Jazz provides service to and from lower-density markets as well as higher-density markets at off-peak times throughout Canada and to and from certain destinations in the United States. Jazz currently operates scheduled passenger service on behalf of Air Canada with over 790 departures per weekday to over 85 destinations in Canada and in the United States with a fleet of Canadian-made Bombardier aircraft.
The name Chorus and the dragonfly word mark were selected for their connection to our operating subsidiary; Jazz Aviation LP. Chorus represents a company that is all about teamwork, unity, and a feeling that anything is possible when people come together. It’s about harmony and diversity as our corporate structure grows to include different entities.
A chorus understands that a flawless performance requires hard work and dedication – something our employees demonstrate every day. Just like a chorus, our people are passionate about what they do. And it shows.
Chorus is a natural extension of the Jazz brand, as both names bring positive associations of music, creativity, and collaboration.
After a period of intensive research, we selected the dragonfly for the Chorus word mark. The design is bold, strong and confident. The olive green colour, while sophisticated and professional, also feels organic and from the earth – representing the start of our new brand journey.
The dragonfly dates back to prehistoric times when dinosaurs roamed the earth and it still exists today. Though Jazz did not operate that far back in history, our heritage goes back to the earliest days of Canadian aviation. In addition to saluting the past, the dragonfly is also believed to represent change and symbolizes prosperity, good luck, strength, and harmony.
