In the midst of contraction by airlines around the world, a new Canadian airline called OWG will soon take off in Quebec, offering international flights South of the border.
The newly established airline is part of Nolinor Aviation’s expansion, a company that has been offering charter services for the past 27 years, mainly to the Far North, with its fleet of Boeing 737s.
Nolinor Aviation began working in 2018 to create the new airline that will position itself in the tourist flight market. The new OWG brand is the product of a $1 million think tank to reinvent the way things are done in this airline industry. The think tank analyzed the best airlines in the world to establish the values and mission of OWG.
President of OWG Marco Prud’homme explains, “The flight portion of your trip should be an integral part of your vacation. Traditional airlines have chosen to cut the quality of their services year after year with no regard for the passenger experience. Our goal is to win the hearts of Quebecers with a new airline whose mission is to get travellers excited again.”
A unique travel experience for vacationers
The Quebec based carrier acquired a fleet of Boeing 737-400s early in 2020 and began transforming them to meet OWG’s high service and safety standards. Unlike many airlines, the aircraft used by OWG will be tracked in real time using a sophisticated communication system.
In order to offer competitive rates, OWG opted for the 158-seater Boeing 737-400 aircraft that have been retrofitted with new, lighter and sturdier seats, an investment of several millions dollars.
In addition to these technological innovations, the new brand is counting on the quality of its team to provide a travel experience that will exceed customer expectations.
With respect to in-flight protection standards against COVID-19, the OWG crew will benefit from the expertise developed by Nolinor Aviation during the crisis, while they continued to serve certain northern destinations by applying the highest standards in terms of health and safety.
According to OWG, the company logo perfectly represents the brand’s spirit which is to present a travel experience that places its passengers at the heart of its actions.
OWG on June 6, received the authorization from Canada’s Minister of Transport to provide regular international flight service. The carrier will begin operations in the coming months to destinations that will be announced shortly.
With all the beach scenes on the website, the Caribbean has to be among the “southern destinations.”
OWG stands for “Off we go” and its motto is “Travel Better.”
