Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, JUNE 17, 1946 Early, Major Conference On Inland Air Route To Alaska Is Planned THE HERALD'S CITY NEWS PAGE PAGE SEVEN Preliminary plans were laid here Saturday afternoon at the interna- tional goodwill meeting for an air- way conference at ii-hich represen- tatives of Alberta, Yukon and 13 states between the Mississippi river and continental divide will be urg- ed to support demands for the es- tablishment of the International Sunshine air route to Alaska. The conference is to be held "as tions that mmy arise due to the papers, forms, etc., that are neces- sary." Delegates also urged Canadian and American airlines which funnel inso each others operations to bet- ter integrate their schedules. The difScultv now, explained airline of- ficials, is due to shortages of equip- ment. The meeting was informed that fcV WC .1UU j coon as possible" and the venue I Canadian airlines now have licenses and date is to be decided by a committee of A. J. Breitensteta of Great Falls, Mont, George Coili- of Denver. Colorado, and C. Becker of Edmonton.

Wheat by Air? J. J. Flaherty of Great Falls felt airlines should standardize equip- ment, and develop their operations to the stage where they could ex- change equipment with each other to permit through flights of the same planes on each other's rouses. In this way passengers would not be required to change from aircraft to aircraft and only Sight crews would be changed. He felt that if railways could do this, airlines should be able to reach a like stage of The same plane could then fly from Mexico to Alaska.
