Our team is comprised of Aviation leaders and enthusiasts who share a common passion - to work and fly Smarter. Ideals which steer our culture are comradery, flexibility, drive, excellence, and meaningful care for one another. We manifest what matters, and we've been listening. In our ever-changing world facing times like no other, what we offer above the rest is simple: Safety, Service, Convenience and Reliability. Our founding team has over 150+ collective years of airline experience and have come together to launch a smarter airline, Connect.
Creating a new airline in a landscape with a lot of players means we can do things a bit differently than others. So we studied the routes, researched aircraft, and spoke to business travelers. We walked through airports, went through customs, and flew on other planes.
This first-hand experience, along with a lot of time in the airline industry, inspired a Smarter way of doing things. We understand business travelers want a premium experience, so we built premium economy into our offering. We recognize that travelers need to get to more places, so we are partnering with other airlines. We realize the Dash-8-400 is a more environmentally friendly and comfortable aircraft, so we’re using a fleet of them. Being a new player in a crowded market means we can do things a little bit better and well, smarter. That’s because we believe there’s a smarter way to fly. And everything we do now and in the future will be guided by this belief.

Aero Crew News is a pilot-hiring magazine designed for pilots by pilots. Most months, we feature a mainline carrier, a regional carrier or a charter company that includes valuable information about the company, plus an interview gouge provided by an interviewer. Each month's issue of Aero Crew News also includes a variety of relevant articles, industry news, and a reference grid that compares more than 30 contractual aspects of three dozen airlines' pilot contracts. The Grid is continuously updated with current information and additional airlines' contracts.
