Caz Caswell Writes:
My tribute to yet another great airline, that I had the pleasure to work for; but this time, on the other side of the Atlantic. (See Laker Airways - A Pictorial Tribute for my first Airline Job)

Mr. Ward also had the same flair as Sir Freddie, to provide the very best, also at lowest cost.
Mr. Wards exploits with the Canadian Government are well documented. Despite the woes Independent Carriers suffered in both Canada and the UK, Wardair became a major force in both the Charter and Schedule Service Markets. But as is so often the case this resulted in a massive debt burden.

The difficulties with the Government, the Servicing of the Debt, exacerbated by IT Problems withe the CRS, all conspired against Wardair. With the result they were unable to continue carrying on the fight and they were taken over by PWA International and then abosrbed into Canadian Airlines ..
