On a previous thread somebody had sent this posted this and I was wondering if their business model can survive the current market and will they manage to get the niche market traffic?

My thoughts are yes, with the appropriate aircraft choices they can. They seem to have the correct management team in place to help get it started and they seem to also have the cash available to put in a big marketing campaign and make themselves a known brand.

Your thoughts?

How is the gas price in Canada? What "sunny destinations" are they looking at.

Tell me which plane, how much cash, which original markets, etc. It's all way too vague right now and seems to be moving more slowly than the principals anticipated.

Gas prices are sitting at $1.20lt - $1.30lt in greater Vancouver at the moment. As long as the spots they fly to are sunny and your leaving from cold part's of Canada people will likely use them.

According to the report on business article it's going to either be a 737NG or an MD80? A bit of a weird choice as both are very different aircraft in terms of acquisition costs and operating costs.

I'm just very curious as to how another company will work in the current Canadian market, specifically something that is targeted at Western tier 2 airports like YLW, YXX, YXS etc.

With $50m in the bank and potentially more on the way, will that give them enough to put a serious campaign together?

The M87 is mentioned as the primary choice of aircraft. The M90 and 737 were mentioned as possibles.

Given the poor rate of survival for charter carriers, and high fuel costs (esp for older aircraft) the odds are against this new airline.



Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.
