ALYX
Home to the twin dragons of Canada

ALYX is a brand new carrier based in Toronto, founded by the Kuramochi sisters it aims to offer a great quality package for both business and holiday travel with an initial focus on the North American market.


Destinations

ALYX currently flies to the following destinations:

Los Angles (LAX), 6 times a day
Las Vegas (LAS), 6 times a day
Vancouver (YVR), 4 times a day
Sydney (SYD), 1.5 times a day (Alternating between 1 and 2 flights daily)

Our focus is of course to grow our network, but we aim to do so in a steady and sustainable pace to ensure that each route runs as smoothly as possible.


The fleet

Airbus A350-900ULR

The Airbus A350-900ULR offers the greatest efficiency and range of widebody jets on the market today and will be at the core of the long haul operational fleet from ALYX. 3 Of the type where initially acquired through a third party lessor, but an agreement has been signed with Airbus for an other 10 planes of the type.

Of course the usual features of the ALYX cabin can be found, but due to the long duration of the flights larger seats have been installed in all classes to provide better levels of comfort throughout the flight. Also these planes will be the first to offer a first class experience with 6 suites installed onboard for the ultimate experience of air travel.

Of course a little Canadian pride cannot be missed when starting an Canadian airline and hence we lease a number of Airbus A220-300 jets leased directly from airbus. Capable of dealing with the cold and being amongst the most modern and efficient jets in the skies they are bound to offer a great experience to all those whom travel onboard them.

Onboard one will find comfortable seating and industry leading IFE and other features such as charging ports for all seats and free unlimited WIFI access for all classes. We have also teamed up with start chefs to create our menus to ensure your flight will be as comfortable as it can be.

Vickers-Armstrongs BAC Super VC10

As a part of our dedication to history as much as the preservation of our future we maintain some classic airliners in operational duty. One of these is a Vickers-Armstrongs BAC super VC10 more commonly known as the Vickers VC10 or just the VC10. These 4 engined jets where made to serve the need for jets capable of dealing with rough, hot and high airports mainly found in places like Africa. After their commercial service they spend a long career with the RAF which recently has decided to retire them. We managed to struck a deal for their best hulls and parts and this example is the first of 2 (one being a standard currently undergoing renovation) we plan to keep in service and will fly twice daily from Toronto to Vancouver.

Of course we did update the interiors to modern standards, though the design has been kept more in style of when these jets actually flew comercially and hence IFE units, plugs and more are all cleverly hidden away until access is desired. Like all our planes they come equipment with onboard unlimited free wifi.

The little brother of the super VC10 the standard VC is the second of our historical fleet and it flies twice daily to Las Vegas, so if you fancy a trip to the city of sin and entertainment in style, look for the VC10 flights. Of course like the super the interior is fully updated.



The Kuramochi sisters

Equal owners and operators of ALYX the Kuramochi twins are known as the twin dragons of Canada for their fierce nature in just about all their dealings. On the left one finds Chiyeko Kuramochi, a graduate with distinction from university of Toronto in law and part of the GPLLM program. On the right one finds Takara Kuramochi a former RCAF C-17 pilot.

They are known to be fierce and protective and unlike many twins they tend to let the person speak who has the better answer from their personal experiences being apart for quite some time when Chiyeko spend her time in the books and Takara spend her time in the skies. A low tolerance for bull crap as they name is common with them both preferring to get to the point of matters ideally as directly as possible. That said in their own ways they can be more diplomatic at times when the situation demands it.

As the business is small they pretty much equally share all the heads at the top of the company, though it is clear Chiyeko does a bit more on the business side and Takara is more focused on the people.

Press release

Toronto
3rd of September 2019



ALYX CEOs Chiyeko & Takara Kuramochi are pleased to announce a new leasing deal with Airbus and Bombardier for 20 A220-300 aircraft which will help ALYX grow it's route network in North America. Deliveries will commence shortly and are expected to be completed by mid November.

ALYX noted that it has been really pleased with the initial 5 planes of the type they used to start their airline with and that both from an operational point of view and that of their customers it has been very well received. They also state that these modern highly efficient jets are the best option for air travel in this size category reinforcing their desire to keep their environmental impact at a minimum. Takara Kuramochi mentioned that the pilots are also in love with the plane calling it a true step forwards in technology and innovation, while Chiyeko Kuramochi noted once again the efficiency, but also the low overall operational cost.

Bombardier and Airbus made clear to be really pleased with the still brand new airline as their customer. ALYX operates in a smart way which is why they have been able to generate great revenue and profit already despite being very new into the market, this makes them a great current and hopefully future customer for Airbus. Bombardier spokes persons noted that they are pleased to see a Canadian airline flying Canadian build and designed planes noting that all the of the A220-300 ordered by ALYX came from Canadian production lines.

As for the destinations it is expected that ALYX will release those shortly once they investigated their best options within the market which in North America is highly competitive. Though Takara Kuramochi has made a comment in regards for wanting to see some warm beaches.
