"Starting an airline is a complicated business. Where do you go to find the information you need to finalize a business plan, compare airplane performance and economics, source aircraft, and locate aviation consultants? Boeing has set up a startup airline support team to help you find the answers to those questions.
You'll also be able to find links to resources and information on this site beginning in July 2006. Information topics will include:
Business plan and financial model review
Aircraft analysis and selection
Buying a new aircraft
Used aircraft resources
Obtaining an airline operating certificate (AOC)
Links to industry resources (lessors, financing, consultants, etc)
In the meantime if you have questions about starting an airline, please e-mail our team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org."

Probaby going to be a good tool. A lot of markets, Africa in particular, may soon have national or private airlines that want to start in underdeveloped or underserved markets. Good job Boeing on offering a service to help the effort.

Quoting AirEMS (Reply 6): Didn't they try this once in the past.... They called it United I tought...
Back then, it was Boeing Air transport, and that was eventually merged with other airlines to form United. Of course, starting an airline back then didn't require nearly as much thought as it does now.
