Dorval Consolidation.

For the past 20 years, Montreal has supported two airport facilities, one with an international focus and one primarily domestic and transborder. Domestic flights have departed from Dorval or Mirabel, all transborder precleared flights from Dorval, and all international flights from Mirabel. After long consideration and significant public discussion, Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) made the decision to consolidate international flights at Dorval, effective September 15, 1997.

Canada's tiny Flair Airlines, which made headlines by handing Boeing a crucial order for 737 MAX jets recently, is forging growth plans inspired by the austerity that transformed Hungary's Wizz Air into one of Europe's largest carriers.

Former Wizz executive Stephen Jones, brought in from Europe to run Flair last year, said the Canadian company had grabbed planes at "a great price" to accelerate a relaunch based on the imported recipe of extreme cost discipline.

"In many ways, the future of Flair will be a cookie-cutter of the success of Wizz," the CEO told Reuters.

One difference? Flair is basing its growth on Boeing jets whereas Wizz shot up the rankings to become one of Airbus's biggest customers.
