Who Will Survive?

The history of the Canadian airline industry has been a story fraught with tumultuous and rapid change. The airlines that will best adapt will be those who understand and respond to shifting public demand. The no frills, low cost airlines are currently providing what the public wants.

The contemporary economics of the airline industry dictate that the airlines must provide low fares. This goal is best achieved with fleets of smaller aircraft that are of the same make so that they have the same maintenance schedules and replacement parts. Aircraft must fly to destinations highly desired by passengers, in order to keep all flights near capacity.

As the Canadian civil aviation industry continues to evolve, those airlines that are quick to respond to changes in passenger demands and still be able to keep expenses under control will be the ones that will survive.
