There is a new airline in Canada. It's name is Air Sprint and it will have it's hub in Montreal-Dorval (YUL). Although you might think that the airline won't work out 'cause Air Canada has it's hub in YUL too, your all wrong. Why you ask? Because the airline will begin operations with a pair of Saab 340s in september. They will offer 3 daily roundtrips from YUL to Albany, Syracuse, Buffalo, and Rochester at first and want to later open up routes to Manchester, Springfield, and Providence. NONE OF THESE CITIES ARE SERVED BY ANY AIRLINE FROM YUL!!! Not even Air Canada flies to these cities from YUL.
I think this airline will do fine. I don't know if they will have domestic flights to YOW, YYZ or YHZ though.

Before deregulation hits, this new airline may have a fighting chance. It is very hard to create a new airline from scratch, but if it is organized by thoughtful men with deep pockets, it may just fly.
