    • Technology

When Waltzing Matilda Aviation (WMA)—the Boston-based FAA Part 135 charter operator—first launched its new Toronto-based Connect Airlines last year, the company’s CEO described his observation of the pandemic as driving airlines to become “lean, agile and digital-first.”

On this episode, Connect Airlines Chief Operating Officer Dave Marcontell provides a status update on how the Q400 operator is preparing to launch passenger-carrying operations. 

The COO also discusses how they’re continuing that commitment to becoming digital-first by investing in a  new QR code-based asset records management system, his vision for becoming a paperless operation and whether they will feature in-flight Wi-Fi on their fleet of Q400s.
