Sorry if this topic has been posted before. I'm not sure if this topic should in the Polls forum or the Civil Aviation forum.

I know during this time no one wants to start an airline. But in the past have you considered owning an airline? Or have you thought about in the future trying to start up an airline?

I have thought about this. If oil prices are down, the economy is stronger, there is low competition, and I got a good education in high school and college I would consider starting an airline. But I don't really know how to start an airline. I'm not rich like Richard Branson so I don't really know how to get money together to start an airline. If everything looked good to start an airline I would try it.

Plans for my airline:

Name: International Airlines

Hub: MSP

Fleet:
6x Bombardier C-110
4x Bombardier C-130

Start up routes:
MSP-DCA 2x daily year-round
MSP-PDX 2x daily year-round
MSP-SFO 2x daily year-round
MSP-MEX 1x daily year-round
MSP-GDL 1x daily year-round
MSP-LAX 2x daily year-round
MSP-SFO 2x daily year-round
MSP-MSY 2x daily year-round

For those of you who considered owning an airline, what were your plans?


It ain't no normal MD80 its a Super 80!

I'd like to start one but finding the $$ is going to be tough. I heard that the guy who started Skybus is trying to do it again. If he can't then what shot to we? There is probably some people with money on this website...

Interesting routes to that you both have proposed.

Can't stand the Bombardier though.
