Skyservice To Start YYZ-LIS-FAO - Sked!

Tue Jul 18, 2006 9:02 am

Canada and Portugal have established a new air transport agreement that will allow for a significant expansion of air services between both countries. This agreement falls within the framework of a deregulation strategy; the details of which will be introduced this fall. Under this new agreement, Canadian airlines will have access to all destinations in Portugal and Portuguese airlines will have the same access to Canadian destinations. There will also be no limitations on the frequency of service carriers can offer. Airlines will enjoy greater flexibility when offering prices in international markets. Additionally, carriers can provide code-sharing services using partner carriers. As a direct result of the new bilateral mentioned above, Skyservice Airlines Inc. has been designated to service Portugal as an international scheduled route. Skyservice has indicated it intends to operate scheduled air services to Lisbon and Faro.
Rumours have it that 5G plans on bringing back a B763 to operate this route.

Interesting news! So that would be the second carrier serving LIS-YYZ after Air Transat (and SATA occasionally).

5G 763? Definitely still rumours  Smile However, I haven't seen any official plans with respect to this announcement, so I'm looking forward to learning more as time progresses.

I'l believe this when I see it. Remember Moscow???? what happend to that? OH ya Transaero has now swooped in and taken that away. Plus the mess with the 767 last year didn't help matters much there. When I see the plane push from the gate then I will believe it Big grin
