SkyTeam plans to soon start trialling its LCC partnership platform with Canada’s WestJet in Vancouver. SkyTeam Connect is designed to facilitate connections with several members in a particular market. The intention is not for the affiliated LCC to work with all members but only those carriers interested in participating – typically members which serve the selected market.

All six SkyTeam carriers that serve Vancouver are participating. If successful, the product could be extended to other Canadian hub airports. But it is not expected to include the entire WestJet network.

With Canada’s only main full-service carrier, Air Canada, in Star, there are limited options for offline connections for airlines outside Star. WestJet is a logical candidate for an alliance’s LCC platform as it has hybridised and has already started codesharing or interlining with several foreign carriers, recognising the opportunities to work with non-Star carriers and improve yields.

SkyTeam Connect is not exclusive so WestJet can also continue to work with oneworld members and unaligned carriers. It could even potentially become affiliated with oneworld if the alliance decides to follow SkyTeam and now Star in developing its own LCC/hybrid platform.

The new Star platform will likely be similar to SkyTeam Connect. The idea is to bring in as partners LCCs and hybrid carriers which are not interested in joining the alliance but would add value by providing connections and feed.
Considering that WestJet has codesharing with a few members of the OneWorld alliance (ie American, Japan Airlines, Cathay Pacific, British Airways) I wonder if that were to continue as well?

Porter Airlines jet plan was ‘surprise’ to Port Authority
Toronto Port Authority documents called Porter Airlines proposal to fly CSeries jets from island airport ‘surprise announcement.’
TORONTO STAR
Published on Wed May 28 2014

The Toronto Port Authority scrambled to understand Porter Airlines’ “surprise announcement” in April 2013 that proposed jets fly from Toronto’s island airport.

In the weeks and months following the announcement, the Porter proposal was top of mind for the port authority, according to minutes of the port authority’s board of directors meetings, obtained by The Star through an Access to Information request.

The documents paint a limited picture of the issues and concerns from Porter Airlines plan to operate Bombardier CSeries jets, which would require the lifting of a jet ban, and a runway extension, initially proposed at 168 metres at each end, and then revised to 200 metres at each end.

The Star filed a request last July asking for all emails, correspondence, memos, and reports related to Porter Airlines’ expansion plans, but when the documents were finally released last week, only heavily redacted Port Authority board meeting minutes, and president and CEO Geoff Wilson’s reports to the board were released.

The Port Authority indicated only items deemed responsive to the request were released. Any information unrelated to the Porter proposal was redacted, said Deborah Wilson, vice-president of communications, in an interview.

The Star has appealed to the Information Commissioner of Canada, arguing that few documents were deemed responsive, in what was clearly one of the biggest files for the Port Authority in the last year.

“The chief item of the past month was of course Porter Airlines’ surprise announcement on April 10 of their vision to expand their current service offering with the purchase of CS100 Bombardier jets for use” at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA), said Geoff Wilson in his April 29, 2013 report to the board.

“Management have been digesting this news and seeking to better understand the Porter plans and the requirements on the airport to accept such aircraft into operation,” he added in the report.

Wilson goes on to say that the decision to have the Port Authority further consider the Porter request will come from the city—and only after city council has deliberated and voted on the issue.

But nearly a year after Porter Airlines CEO Robert Deluce first made his announcement about the airline’s conditional order for 12 jets, Toronto city council voted in April to defer any final decision on whether jets should be permitted and a possible runway extension until 2015, long after the October municipal election.

In the meantime, the Port Authority, which operates the airport, is working on developing an airport master plan, and has put out requests for proposal for the runway design and environment assessment.

3 injured on flight landing at Edmonton International Airport
Incident occured with a Q-400 aircraft from Calgary on its way to Grande Prairie
CBC News Excerpt
Nov 06, 2014

Three people were taken to hospital with minor injuries after an Air Canada plane bound for Grande Prairie, Alta. experienced a problem on a runway at Edmonton International Airport at 8:36. MT Thursday.

Airport spokeswoman Heather Hamilton confirmed a Q-400 aircraft had some kind of problem during landing.

The Air Canada flight 8481 left Calgary with 71 passengers and 4 crew members. While the plane was in the air, the pilot realized that a tire had blown. Strong crosswinds in Calgary meant the plane had to be diverted to Edmonton.

The plane made a smooth landing but then something went wrong, Hamilton said.

"It landed in Edmonton but then there was some incident shortly after it landed," she said. "And as a result of that, there were injuries to three passengers."

Be prepared for an ultra-low cost carrier, similar to Spirit Airlines here in the United States...

Canadian ULCC start-up, Jetlines, eyes AOC by May, launch by July

This can open up to an even greater competition for the low-cost market, currently being dominated by Air Transit and Westjet.

Quote:
Jetlines (Vancouver Int'l) says it hopes to conclude its AOC certification process with the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) this May in time for a July launch. Outlining its revised launch plans in an investors prospectus seen by ch-aviation, the start-up says its fleet will initially consist of a pair of leased B737 Classic aircraft based out of Vancouver Int'l. Though it will initially focus on western Canadian cities, it also plans to apply to authorities in the United States, Mexico, and several undisclosed Caribbean island nations for traffic rights.

"Within the first 36 months of operations (assuming Jetlines receives its United States, Mexico and Caribbean flight rights as anticipated) Jetlines plans to lease seven Boeing 737 Classics and one Boeing 737NG aircraft, and, subject to availability of financing, to lease or purchase a further eight Boeing 737NG aircraft for a total of sixteen aircraft," it said.

WestJet prepares to add widebody aircraft
16 January 2015
Air Transport World Excerpt

As it prepares to add four Boeing 767-300ER aircraft later this year, Calgary-based WestJet cautions it is only “dipping a toe in the widebody waters” as it tests whether it wants to expand its international network.

In the short term, WestJet Airlines appears less interested in creating a bona fide competitor to Air Canada’s leisure affiliate rouge and more concerned with incorporating a new type into its fleet. WestJet management seems well aware other discount airlines, such as Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air, with its Boeing 757 fleet, have struggled when adding a new aircraft capable of different types of missions.

“We have to learn the widebody world,” WestJet spokesman Robert Palmer said, noting the airline must coordinate how it finds new hangars, learns maintenance techniques and trains support staff.

WestJet’s plan remains the same as when it was announced in July. Later this year, it will fly the aircraft within North America to obtain Extended Twin-Engine Operations (ETOPS) approvals, before deploying them to Hawaii in winter 2015/2016. Next, WestJet will likely shift them to international routes in summer 2016. Most analysts believe WestJet will initially fly them to Europe, perhaps to Glasgow and Dublin—two cities it now flies to in the summer from Halifax, Nova Scotia with Boeing 737-700 aircraft. But WestJet hasn’t given much guidance about exactly where it will fly the aircraft after Hawaii.

WestJet has, however, said the 767s can fly spanning as long as 11 hours, which suggests it would consider flying to Asia from Western Canada, if it can secure the route authorities. WestJet’s main competitor, Air Canada’s rouge, has thus far concentrated its widebody flying to Europe. Another Canadian competitor, Air Transat, also has a heavy European route network.

Palmer stressed WestJet has committed to only four 767s, saying this is more of an experiment than anything else. All four are former Qantas aircraft now owned by Boeing Capital, which will lease them to WestJet.
