  • Non YEG Destination but Maybe ... Breeze USA

    "Azul, which has a market capitalization of more than $2.8 billion, has no competition on 70% of its routes and is dominant on 89% of its routes, Neeleman said in that earlier interview. With Breeze, Neeleman plans to follow essentially the same strategy by launching point-to-point flights in markets that bigger airlines have either overlooked or didn't consider to be worth the effort.

    According to Neeleman, the opportunity exists because as costs increase for airlines, they have a tendency to retrench their network to focus on their hubs and operate larger planes. They leave behind smaller less-trafficked destinations, creating opportunity. We think there's a market where you can go with a smaller plane with a lower trip cost and service these cities that have been forgotten or neglected," he said. "I would be very surprised if a single Moxy route had nonstop service competition. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of city pairs that are crying out for nonstop flights."

    "The airline has ordered 60 new Airbus A220-300 aircraft — a longer version of the A220-100s that have been highly successful for Delta. Air Canada recently began flying the A220-300 variant.

    Breeze also plans to lease 30 Embraer E195 jets from Azul, deliveries of which will begin in May 2020. The A220s are expected beginning in April 2021.

    Neeleman hopes to begin commercial operations by the end of 2020."

    I'm curious if Flair has seen this?

          The problem is, securing flights just for the Edmonton market can be volatile as proven historically so is there an opportunity to go beyond that? Could Flair, Porter, and other cooperate and funneled passengers into two centres- one in the east and Edmonton for West to secure sufficed passenger counts for the destination we need?What can be done to get European catchment to land in Edmonton and transfer to other destination from here?
          We have done this method many times before and was only successful to a degree. The only way is to cooperate multilateral rather than individual. If multiple partners focus on their direct agendas, they'll have an easier time combating the big fish.
