Realistically this company would do far better to make CLD a minor or focus airport, and concentrate on building business services to PHX/Mesa 2X daily from many of the cities they are serving and proposing service to. At this point PHX/Mesa is probably one of the most underserved business markets out there with "daily" service from major markets with the caliber of aircraft CalPac is utilizing.
Additionally they need to get a loyalty flyer program out there immediately.
I’ve been thinking the same thing about AZA. One thing I’m curious about is if there is a market for some sort of “CanadaPass” that a carrier could sell in Canada to those wintering in the east valley that would entice them to fly [California Pacific] on side trips to, say, Disneyland, San Diego, or the Bay Area?
Total sidetrack I know. However, just tying it in to the idea of CPA flying to AZA.
