Re: Commuting with Swoop

Thanks all for the info. Surely it must be possible to jumpseat or go standby on your own airline though. Swoop does a decent amount of flights from Halifax to Hamilton. It's just whether the cost of doing so would be worth it in renting a room, other transport costs etc Swoop currently flies from ...

Re: Tim Croyle to retire from WestJet

I feel like there is a WJ Vacations/Swoop/Sunwing/TUI shake up on the horizon. I thought that before the current Swoop/Sunwing deal. Looks like they are testing the waters for a JV or buyout?

Flycemair.ca new 705 operator

I noticed two job ads for a start up in YQM called Flycemair.ca

Their website so the same logo as the South African Cemair.

Does anyone know anything about this company?
