A new airline will be coming to Toronto's Billy Bishop City Airport this October.......

A new airline is all set to start operating this October, from Billy Bishop City Airport in Toronto in direct competition with Porter which also operates out of the same city centre airport. And, just like Porter,  this new airline will be using Bombardier Q400 turboprop aircraft to service various destinations in the Northeast and the Midwest areas of the United States.

The new carrier will be called Connect Airlines and is the brainchild of Waltzing Matilda Aviation (WMA) which is an FAA licensed Part 135 private jet charter operator based in Bedford,  Massachusetts. The company has been going since June 2008 and has operated thousands of hours of safe and reliable flying out of the Boston area.

WMA owns and operates both its own aircraft as well as managed aircraft and believes in utilizing the latest technology to ensure the safest operations. The current aircraft are equipped with the latest avionics that allows for landings with lower visibility conditions than most aircraft.

Connect Airlines aims to offer a premium style service for day-tripping business travellers direct into Toronto's downtown island Billy Bishop airport, subject to regulatory approvals.  John Thomas, Chief Executive Officer of WMA, comments: "We are passionate about how aviation brings people, cultures and business together. Especially in these challenging times, we are committed to delivering the world's most rewarding premium travel experience with safety, service, convenience and reliability."
