    MONTREAL - Air Canada (TSX:AC.B) named a former executive at discount carrier Air Tran Airways as its chief operating officer on Friday.

    Klaus Goersch takes over the job effective Oct. 1.

    Goersch was executive vice-president of operations and customer service at Air Tran and helped oversee the merger of AirTran into Southwest Airlines.

    Air Canada chief operating officer Duncan Dee retired earlier this year after 15 years at the airline.
    Goersch joins Air Canada as the airline looks to start a separate low-cost carrier.

    The airline has said it is weeks away from announcing details of a new discount carrier that will serve transatlantic and leisure routes in the Caribbean and the United States.

    It will be wholly owned by Air Canada, but carry a different name and have its own management team.

    I sure hope it is not TPAC as that is hard enough already on Tango fares! :eek: Really want to see where this will go.
