This report first provides a broad outline of the current structure of the airline industry in Canada, including the most recent trends for merging with regional affiliates, forging alliances with international carriers, and vertically integrating into computer reservation services. Fare determination, airline cost structures, and air networks are also reviewed.

Thirdly, a detailed comparison of competitiveness is made: First between both of Canada's national air carriers, and then between them and their American counterparts.
