GTAA to seek leave to appeal
Date of Release: Feb 25, 2004
TORONTO, CANADA – The Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) today announced that its Board of Directors has unanimously decided to seek leave to appeal the decision by Justice Farley issued on Monday, February 23rd, that granted Air Canada the exclusive use of the 14 bridged gates on the New Terminal 1 at Pearson Airport.
The GTAA asserts that there was no agreement with Air Canada that would give it fixed preferential use of all the contact gates on the New Terminal 1 when operations commence. The GTAA further asserts that, consistent with the approach adopted by the GTAA at the outset for the design and operation of all facilities at Toronto Pearson, the New Terminal 1 has been designed and is intended to be operated as a common use facility. This allows several airlines to use facilities as they have need of them. Because of this common use approach a Protocol was developed as a mechanism to allocate terminal facilities among airlines in an equitable and fair manner. The GTAA believes the Protocol was not correctly interpreted in the ruling.

"At issue here is the future use of the New Terminal 1 for the benefit of the Greater Toronto Area community so that airline services can be provided in the most efficient manner, airline competition can occur on an equitable basis and the maximum number of passengers can utilize this modern, first-class facility," said Mr. Louis A. Turpen, President and CEO of the GTAA. "We must not allow the future effectiveness of this wonderful new Terminal to be compromised by a present expediency. We are committed to providing passengers at Toronto Pearson choice, convenience and the highest levels of service."

This may actually get interesting. May ask my business teacher to take us to the next trial.
