Well they now have a url for Montana Reservations, although it is not their regular Gulfstream International webite, and you can only call and make the reservation at this point. It said that on-line booking is coming soon. They do show a route map on the site. its at flygia.com

They are piggy backing off of Island Air's GDS/CRS.... flights are already in the GDS

Apparently their website gives you three options (as seen on their header graphic): "Fly Safe," "Fly Smart," or "Fly Gulfstream."

    



I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

Gonna be interesting to see what a fleet of B1900's that have lived in South Florida for all their life handle a hard northern winter....don't think it is gonna be a cake walk.

I don't think it's the aircraft you have to worry about, but the crews.

Yeah, lets see how well 3M can replace ZK on the Montana stuff. They really don't have a big shoe to fill, but I somehow see then having a tough time trying to make the Montana stuff work. Good luck to them non the less!

AC Jazz has a few 1900's flying out of YYC, so the hardware should be ok a few hundred miles south.
For most of the pilots moving to YYC was a huge step south, which is generally considered an easier acclimatization the going from Florida to Montana in winter!

I would take a Montana Winter day over a Florida Summer day any time of the week!

I agree. I think the aircraft will handle it ok. BigSky and G. Lakes both used 1900s in that region, and they did pretty well. The big thing is how the crews handle it. The crews that have lived in the northern part of the country should do ok. The crews who have never been around the northern winter day in, day out could be in for a rude awaking. The best thing I can tell MT. based crews: if you don't have a 4-wheel drive vechicle get one, there will be days where you wont get to work without one.



Bring back Western Airlines!

Don't forget the engine block heater, too...

Couldn't be any worse than the reliability of ZK. Their cancellation record in Montana is horrendous.

They do have pilots who fly out of the CLE hub so I would imagine they would maybe move some of them to Montana. Of course winter flying in Montana is different and difficult but so is Summer flying in Florida and the Bahamas. As much criticism Gulfstream Academy has had in recent years of its training Gulstream International itself as an airline has a fantastic safety record.
