I read in a recent newspaper article that there is a a number of Canadian start-up airlines that are trying to take to the skies, about seven of them, maybe more, I forget. Now, I know there is C3 and Royal, also Air Columbus and Canada West, but is there any more? Have you guys heard any news?

Because you are buying a package through a tour operator rather than a flight through an airline. As such, tour operators charter aircraft to provide their services...whether domestic or international.

Well, I can only provide some insight here as far as Canada West goes...
Essentially we'll be seeing a two-757-200 charter operation based out of Vancouver (although there is also a LOT of rumour that they're looking at Edmonton as well). I quote airline President Gordon Andrews, "We're looking to reintroduce service into the travel industry...". Imagine the Southwest Airline's business type modeled into a charter airline. By the end of the year we'll see flights to Mexico. Summers in Europe. They're also looking to add a third 757 for destinations in Hawaii and increased frequency.
