Help Reimagine the Regional Airline
While Dash Air Shuttle, Inc is not a direct air carrier today, Dash Air Shuttle utilizes Backcountry Aviation (BCA) to operate Dash marketed flights. Ultimately, Dash Air Shuttle intends to become a direct air carrier with economic authority.
As other regional carriers have reduced or eliminated flights in favor of larger aircraft and markets, Dash plans to reestablish air service to smaller communities around the Northwest and beyond. Dash plans to initially reestablish air service to communities that are under 200 miles from Seattle; difficult to reach by car, geography, traffic or other means; and complements existing air service options today. These underserved communities will be linked with Seattle/Tacoma and King County (Boeing Field) International Airports. Dash intends to complement service to BFI and SEA with flights to other regional airports in Washington state.
A profitable niche. Most importantly, Dash will be building a network of short haul niche markets that will allow it to be more insulated from other airline dynamics. We expect Dash to outperform the industry in terms of revenue generation and profitability. This is consistent with other peer airlines like Kenmore Air or Cape Air.
Uncontested service gap. Dash will fill a growing gap in the market that had previously established airline service - and has seen tremendous growth since the Pandemic began. Our only competitor is the highway, giving us an edge in developing markets quickly and profitably.
An Investment in the economic development of the region. Air service will be an economic catalyst for the entire region – driving business development, improved quality of life, and an infusion of new tourism opportunities.
Simple operating platform. Our initial fleet of 9 seat piston aircraft maintain a simplified, lower cost operating platform to build from.
Highly experienced team. Our team collectively has over 100 years of experience managing and running airlines and have over twenty years of experience working in the Pacific Northwest with Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air. We know these markets well and how to succeed.
Electric will be the future. Electric propulsion will revolutionize the industry and create completely new, unconventional point-to-point markets. Since electric propulsion is being developed around short haul, 9 seat capacity aircraft, there are very few airlines positioning themselves for this dramatic shift and we will be at the forefront.
