New Canadian airline OWG looks to launch: In what would seem like the worst possible time to launch a new airline, that’s exactly what the Canadian company Nolinor—it has offered charter transportation services to clients which, for the most part, gone to the country’s Far North. Now, Nolinor has launched a new airline called OWG (“Off we go!”), which is scheduled to take off at the beginning of August in Quebec, offering flights to southern destinations. This new initiative is the fruit of Nolinor Aviation’s continued expansion into a new market.
For the past 27 years, Nolinor has offered charter transportation solutions, mainly to the Far North, with its fleet of some ten Boeing 737s. According to a news release announcing the new service, the Nolinor Aviation team has been secretly working since 2018 to create a new airline that will position them in the tourist flight market. The company invested more than $1 million in a think tank to reinvent the way things are done in this industry. They analyzed the best airlines in the world to establish the values and mission behind the new OWG brand, which will offer regular flights to some destinations in the Caribbean with its fleet of Boeing 737-400s that can accommodate 158 passengers.
