Exclamation Odyssey International Airlines

I'm trying to help a friend find out about Odyssey International Airlines, I think a Canadian Charter Operator in the late 80's.
HAs anyone got any info on this outfit they could share?

Yes, they were based in YYZ and operated 757s with a fairly attractive livery. Belonged to a tour operator though I can't remember off-hand who the ultimate owner was. Had quite a decent service.

ODDYSSEY were part of a group called Soundair
and operated 3 757s, CGAWB, CFTDL, and, I think, CFNBC. Had a major op thru. NCL using it as a tech-stop from YYZ to Rome, Athens etc. They were another that was dragged down by the woes of the parent company.

Was based in Toronto (YYZ) and following the bankrupcy of Soundair, Odysseys assets were transferred to WARDAIR.

Flight designators were OL / ODY.

Did operate through NCL during summer 1989 / 1990, also operating weekly charter flight YYZ-NCL-YYZ,(Worldways did also).

As Guvnor said, known for a good service and well looked after aircraft.
