The Roland Désourdy Airport in Bromont (QC) retained Explorer Solutions services to prepare a market analysis and a feasibility study to develop schedule commercial services from the airport. The analysis and study were conducted over a five-month period and included a survey to the manufacturers located in the attraction radius of the Airport.
Our team conducted a survey of more than 330 manufacturers located within a 75 kilometers of the airport along with a survey to the large tourism site. Our work also contained an evaluation of the terminal and other airport facilities that would be required to host a minimum of two (2) flights per day.
We prepared revenue and cost estimates for the entire operations along with required upgrade and modification to the terminal and ground side parking. Interviews were conducted with CATSA, Transport Canada to review the requirements of host CATSA services and meet rules and regulations for scheduled commercial services.
Number of passengers forecast was provided and a double verification of the data was conducted based on volume of passengers presently using the Montreal-Trudeau Airport. The targeted destination was established as Toronto-Pearson Airport.
From our work ZBM conducted an outreach program to all major Canadian Airlines. Two (2) airlines were showing interest to use ZBM to develop this new route. Our report was also presented to government officials to support a request to obtain CATSA services. Since this work, ZBM has retained our services for two (2) other mandates.
