Will Cabotage Ever Happen In The US And Canada?

Sun Feb 19, 2006 7:47 am

I always thiught it would be neat for Cabotage to become a reality in the US and Canada. I can imangine AC Flight 467 With service to PHL from MCO, or WN with service to YYZ to Yul. Just was wondering if it would ever happen and what would be the result.

No.

Or do you mean only between US and Canada (and I assume Mexico) in some sort of open skies zone? Then, maybe, just maybe that would happen, but it would involve Air Canada merging with a US airline to make it happen.

But no way a carrier not from north america would be allowed, and frankly, I really don't see a north american zone either.

Not just yet... but it will happen eventually.. the closest this will get to right now is the right to fly from one country to another and then continue on to another.. like what AC is planning to do from YYZ-LAX-SYD in a couple of years..

So effectively we may see say AA, DFW-YVR-PEK...

Well, for a lot of itineraries within the U.S., YYZ could actually be a reasonably logical connecting point. Likewise, DTW or MSP could (conceivably) serve as connecting points for domestic Canadian itineraries. It would be more likely at YYZ, as it would not be that hard to permit people to connect there without ever entering Canada.
