As we all have dreams or ambitions...i was wondering if the following idea could make money...
It would be a Tour Operating company selling seat only fares to travel agents and other tour operators.
The way that i thought it may work would be that the company would have their own atc slots allocated to them for the routes that you were going to be selling and then the company would charter in other airlines with high capacity a/c to operate the routes.
Lets say...I have 2 slots for LGW-TFS-LGW on a friday and charter in a A300 with high density seating to operate the route.
My company would be selling these seats to travel agents,tour operators and the public.
So in brief:
Im a tour operator
I have these allocated slots
What i need to ensure is that i can have an a/c to operate these flights that i sell.
Im sure that wouldnt be to much of a problem with the amount of ad-hoc charter companies there are out there.
You have European Air Charter, Air Atlanta, Prime, Cougar, Transjet and im sure there are more.
Please tell me if the idea i have could work...i know there are lots of risks involved...but could i make money out of this.
Has anyone ever tried something like this...is it possible for a tour operator to have allocated atc slots.
How much capital do you think i would need to do this.
Hope you can help...and please...this is just an idea that i had.
