ZiNG Airlines, a start-up airline out of Moncton, Canada, plans on using the locally manufactured Bombardier CS100 jets to compete with Air Canada and WestJet.
ZiNG Founders, Wayne Fernandes and Ben de Mendonca, are planning to start Canadian domestic flights in second quarter of 2017 and are currently seeking investments through a crowdfunding platform.
Part of their pitch is the following:
"At its maximum, we envision dethroning WestJet as Canada’s #2 carrier; it is our opinion that their fleet is a mismatch for the skies of Canada given the advent of the CSeries. Their over dependence on the foreign made 737 was their greatest strength and we intend on making it their greatest weakness."
