Any other info? When are they hiring? What qualifications are they looking for? Could it be Canada West?

Ah yes, Valair, of course, the new Quebec City based start-up....or at least I think it's Quebec City based. They had advertisements in Quebec City's newspaper not too long ago. I'll try to get more info on them.

Yes it is Valair. Rumours are that it is set-up by a certain Mr. Filliatrault who was the owner, or at least the main shareholder, of Air Allliance. When he sold the company to Air Ontario, he was involved in LIAT in the Caribean Islands for a while.

The company plans to use DHC8. No more details for the moment.

Any chance of them flying to YTZ or even YKZ instead of YYZ? That would make things more interesting!
Next flight.... who knows.

It definitely would make things more interesting, especially with Jazz potentially growing in the Air Canada network, and also with Regco wanting to start up with their shiny new Q400's.
