Connect Airlines

Main hub: Hanscom Field
Country/Territory: United States of America


Waltzing Matilda Aviation d/b/a Connect Airlines is a proposed American carrier. Subject to regulatory approvals, the carrier will operate Q400 turboprop aircraft to destinations in the Northeast and Midwest US. Connect Airlines will be the launch airline for IBS Software's "Airline-in-a-box" set of solutions.

In Jul-2022, Connect Airlines received Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity and exemption authority by US Department of Transportation (DoT) to operate scheduled interstate passenger, freight and mail services. DoT also tentatively approved the carrier's certificate authorising foreign scheduled air transportation, which will be formally awarded following a separate review by the White House. The carrier subsequently plans to apply for Canadian authorisation before beginning scheduled services from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport to Chicago and Philadelphia.

In Oct-2022, the carrier announced plans to commence operations from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport to Philadelphia in Jan-2023.
