With international travel restrictions on the way to easing in Canada, airlines are beginning to re-evaluate their plans for the winter season in the northern hemisphere, and in this regard, OWG / Nolinor president Marco Prud’Homme said that the company plans to operate flights to the most popular tourist destinations in the Canadian market, including cities in Jamaica, Mexico and the Dominican Republic, although he has not given specific details at this time.
In statements made to the Canadian media PAX, Prud’Homme said that “we have specific plans for each of the destinations. We will gradually make the announcements when the time comes.”
“As stated at the launch of the company, the vision is to renew the travel experience with happy passengers to more destinations, so it is not surprising that we will add more popular routes,” he added.
This comes days after Transport Canada granted Nolinor / OWG the authorization to fly to those countries, as well as to the United States.
OWG had been operating Cuba flights in partnership with Caribe Sol / Hola Sol from Montreal and Toronto until the Canadian government tightened restrictions on international tourist travel, and has since been conducting charter operations within the country.
Marco Prud’Homme also informed that the airline will add a third aircraft to its fleet, currently comprised of two Boeing 737-400s with capacity for 158 passengers.
Nolinor had surprised the market in July last year by announcing the launch of a subsidiary for vacation operations to the Caribbean. The company is based at Montreal’s Mirabel airport, and specializes in operating cargo and passenger charters to destinations in Canada’s far north with a unique fleet of Boeing 737-200 and 737-300 aircraft, most of them in combi configuration.
