Zip (airline)

Zip Airline codes|3J|WZP|Zipper was a Canadian discount airline based in Calgary, Alberta, launched by Air Canada as a no-frills subsidiary in September 2002. It operated a fleet of 12 Boeing 737 aircraft, each painted in a different bright, neon colour (blue, fuchsia, green and orange) with a single class of service.

As a direct competition to Canada's leading low-cost carrier WestJet, Zip flew mostly between the western cities of Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Saskatoon and Winnipeg.

Zip was closed down in September 2004 and most of its employees were folded back into Air Canada.
