Confusion Clouds International Air Travel.
Aviation Week & Space Technology 100+ Years Archives, April 8, 1963.
Relations among nations involved in international air transportation became chaotic last week as an open-rate situation appeared on Atlantic and Pacific routes and the new U.S. international policy for civil aviation again became bogged down at the White House.
As of late last week, the bitter fare conflict has plunged the industry into wide-spread confusion, making it difficult to determine the exact stand each government was taking. This much was clear, however: the U.S. now is not facing the solid opposition it originally confronted.
Cascadia Air was set to be the newest small-scale commercial airline in B.C. this spring, but due to COVID-19, it's focusing on transporting essential goods, services and personnel to the province's more remote communities.
Jeremy Barrett, the COO and chief pilot of the Campbell River-based company, said it became evident in March that launching the service as planned would be difficult.
Barrett, along with other senior pilots on the fleet's team, has experience piloting air ambulances. He said the best thing they could do was switch to a more cargo-based emergency service for the duration of the pandemic.
The airline will be providing Rapid Emergency Air Delivery - or READY - services to remote communities on Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast, Haida Gwaii and the Interior.
Barrett said "Right now, the biggest call we see are food items that are critical," he said. "Some places are unable to get common items like sanitizers, disinfectant materials and personal protective equipment."
