Interesting, eh? Note the line about "interline agreements," would this mean oneworld has found a Canadian partner?

Good to hear now only if they would start serving Newfoundland. We have no competition here in YYT and it is extreamly expensive to get off this island!! hopefully Canjet and West Jet will make it here soon!!

Even though there hasn't been any indication about routes from CanJet yet, I would put money on them flying to YYT as one of their first destinations because they plan to use IMP's Air Atlantic maintenance base at YYT. I've heard August 1 as the start date.

Cool! That's what I want to see - MORE COMPETITION, NOT LESS!!!!!!!!

I sure hope that oneworld will accept this new airline into its membership list, if they won't accept Canada 3000 even if it became a full-service airline like Canadian.

Right on SKyservice....I like the sounds of this airline more then canjet or any others........It's to bad that they are going to go with the Airbus plastic, but that is a matter of personal preferance.........I can't wait to hear more about the new airline.........

I personally like the idea. I agree with Skyservice that there is room for 1.25 major carriers, and that there isn't room for 2 carriers that are "all things to all people." I also think that the corporate jet business puts them in a better position to start up a full service carrier. Also, they have an advantage in that they seem to do a lot of wet-lease deals, or subcharters for other airlines, so because they're not a large established charter line like C3, they wouldn't lose their charter type customers by going full-service. Say what you like about it, I also feel that the A320 would be great for their type of service, good passenger appeal and a full-service type, when people in Canada think of 757's they think of crammed charters, and the 737 gives impressions of old -200's at CP and WJ.

Anyone want to guess what airlines the unnamed Skyservice operation will be affiliated with? AA and oneworld is probably most likely, but would it possibly be others? Or would they be nonpartisan and codeshare and reciprocate ffp's with several, such as AA, CO, NW, BA, AF, CX, QF, SR, etc.

This does make me wonder what will happen with the rest of the charters. Obviously WJ can succeed, and I think there is room (at least in eastern markets) for CanJet to be successful, and I think there's room for "1.25 full service carriers" but I wonder about the other 3 charters. Transat has a good reputation for profitability, and they have been very very quiet in the last few months, I wonder if they're going to watch and see or buy out another charter or maybe pick up the pieces if one fails. Or will Transat simply stick to its charter game plan and not chase the domestic scheduled market too much. I'm convinced that there is room for 2 charters on seasonal true charter style service to Mexico, the Carribean, and Europe, but are they overcrowding the domestic market? When CanJet or WestJet get into markets like YYT, will that crowd out Canada3000? I have to think maybe yes, because people prefer the daily frequencies of WJ to the "day of the week" schedules of C3 or Royal. There still may be room for charter activity on a lot of routes, but will we see a merger in order to make it practical? Or will we maybe see a charter fail? Any guesses?
