Sarasota Airlines is a proposed US start-up, to be based at Bradenton International Airport, Florida. Steve Miller, former CEO of Dragonair and latterly, Oasis Hong Kong, is behind the project. Miller reportedly sought to launch the start-up in 2H2013 under the name 'Sunrise Airlines'. The airline industry veteran is again seeking USD30 million for the lease of four Boeing 737 aircraft, with plans to service the metropolitan centres of Baltimore, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and 20 additional US cities. Miller believes that with the USD30 million in capital, the start-up could generate earnings of USD164.3 million before taxes in its first year of operations. By the fourth year, Miller believes the airline could earn USD76.1 million. No word on a potential launch date has been given.
