Air Georgian is an airline based in the Shell Aerocentre in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.[2] It was established and started operations in 1994 and operates as a charter and airline carrier. It once had a C208 Amphid in the UAE which was the first in the region. It had a long time cargo operation known as Georgian Express which was sold to Cargo Jet in 2007. It is an executive jet operator offering charter and management services in CYYZ, CYHZ and CYUL. Air Georgian is one of the only 704 operators to have the IOSA audit from ICAO. Its main business is its operation as Air Canada Alliance on a Tier III codeshare with Air Canada for scheduled services on domestic and trans-border routes. Its main base is Toronto Pearson International Airport, with hubs at Halifax Stanfield International Airport and Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport[1].

Air Georgian is a certified dealer of P&W ADAS systems and is the Canadian Service Ctr for the Hawker Premier.

Air Georgian has a pilot mentor program where it hires top graduates from a college in Ontario and a University in New Brunswick. The program was introduced in 2008 as a way to address the projected pilot shortage. The program is active currently and has been a great success for both Air Georgian and for the young pilots.

Air Georgian Pilots are represented by an internal union OREA. The company and the union work together to address the many challenges the industry faces.
