Canadian Pacific Airlines

A Canadian Pacific Airlines aircraftCanadian Pacific Airlines (CP Air) realized it would face difficulties as long as the federal government maintained its policy of supporting TCA as the only national airline in Canada. As a result, CP Air made a suggestion to the government that it merge with TCA in 1942. The government rejected the proposed merger shortly before making an open declaration that TCA would be Canada’s single national airline. In the following years, CP Air was granted a few overseas routes. By the late 1950s, CP Air was given an opportunity to offer a daily route across Canada.A Canadian Pacific Airlines aircraft
