CHANGES IN THE AIR


Canada’s 150th anniversary is the ideal time to visit a vast country that offers something different at every turn, yet the surprises don’t extend to the downtrodden aviation industry that may soon see its fortunes change

C


anada’s 36 million people wallow in nearly four million square miles of land. That’s a little


over nine people per square mile, making the country one of the most sparsely populated on earth. It’s these wide-open spaces that make air transport such a vital issue for Canada – for instance, if you are contemplating travelling the 2,700 miles between Toronto and Vancouver. When you add in the huge number of friends and families of Canadians based abroad and a sizeable dollop of international trade too, it’s easy to see why air connectivity – domestic and international – is so vital to the country. This year is a landmark for Canada, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary. So, in its infancy, air travel was not even on the drawing board; now, travelling to remote communities in the icy north or moving between the picturesque east and west coasts is all but inconceivable without using an aircraft.
