New North American airline launches

Launching a new airline in the midst of a global pandemic might seem like an odd choice, but the brains behind OWG have been “secretly working” since 2018 to get the airline off the ground.

Established by Nolinor Aviation, OWG just received authorisation from Canada’s Minister of Transport to provide regular international flights, and will soon take off from Quebec with services to “southern destinations”.

Best known for its charter transportation solutions, Nolinor Aviation is hoping to expand into the tourist flight market and earlier this year acquired a fleet of Boeing 737-400s, which have since been transformed into OWG craft.


“The flight portion of your trip should be an integral part of your vacation,” OWG President Marco Prud'homme said.  


“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.”


Each OWG aircraft will be tracked in real time using a sophisticated communication system, and when it comes to in-flight protection standards against COVID-19, the OWG crew will likely 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”.


OWG will begin operations in the coming months with destinations to be announced shortly.
