Re: New Canadian startup Pivot Airlines

What is the approximate population of the Waterloo region? Kitchener / Waterloo / Galt is just over half a million people. But IMO the main reason for low use of YKF is that the drive from the centre of the area to the parking garage of YYZ is less than an hour. There are far more price and schedul...

Re: New Canadian startup Pivot Airlines

YKF has had airline service right back to the mid 1970s, when Great Lakes Airlines added the stop on their YYZ-YZR services, using CV440s. The flights continued east to YPQ and YOW.

Like all airline service since to YKF, it didn’t last long. I don’t suspect this will be all that successful either.
