ACE Aviation Holdings Inc. announces an exchange of units of Jazz Air LP for units of Jazz Air Income Fund

    MONTREAL, April 2 /CNW Telbec/ - ACE Aviation Holdings Inc. (ACE)
announced that it has exchanged its remaining 47,226,920 units of Jazz Air LP
into 47,226,920 units of Jazz Air Income Fund. The exchange was made by ACE
for internal reorganization purposes pursuant to the terms of the investor
liquidity agreement entered into at the time of the initial public offering of
Jazz Air Income Fund. Further to such exchange, Jazz Air Income Fund now has
122,865,143 units issued and outstanding, of which 72,226,920 units are held
by ACE, representing 58.8% of the units issued and outstanding.
    In connection with this exchange, ACE, Jazz Air Trust and Jazz Air
Holding GP Inc. have agreed to amend the terms of the securityholders'
agreement dated February 2, 2006 to reflect ACE's indirect interest in Jazz
Air Holding GP Inc. and maintain various rights of ACE thereunder on the basis
of the percentage of outstanding units of Jazz Air Income Fund held by ACE
rather than on the shares of Jazz Air Holding GP as is currently the case. ACE
will therefore continue to have the right to appoint the majority of the
directors of Jazz Air Holding GP for as long as it holds at least 20% of the
units of Jazz Air Income Fund.
