Skyservice Airlines Inc. was a charter airline (Skyservice Airlines) based in the Etobicoke area of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It employed more than 2000 people. Skyservice Airlines Inc. flew within Canada and to the U.S., Caribbean, Mexico, Israel and Europe. During the summer Skyservice sold tickets to Europe from Toronto using a Boeing 757-200WL. It also used an Airbus A330-300 for other chartered flights to Europe from Canada. Scheduled services to some destinations were offered during the summer season. Skyservice offered online-booking for those who wished to travel on Skyservice's scheduled destinations in the summer. Skyservice Airlines began operations in 1994.

Skyservice was forced into receivership on March 31, 2010 as a result of a near $9 million debt to its long term partner Sunquest Vacations. As a result, Skyservice abruptly ceased operations. Roughly 860 jobs are expected to be lost as a result.
