The CTA has suspended Go Travel Directs plans to launch Trans Atlantic flights between LGW and various cities in Canada due to a restriction regarding the use of Finnair a/c.
According to the CTA, Finnair a/c are only permitted to be used on routes between Canada and Finland, not to other destinations outside Finland.
I checked GDT's website, and it is showing their website under construction.

Hmmm... selling flights without government approval... not a good sign (even if they had good intentions). In a case like this, would they have to refund the existing bookings or just hold the money until they're legal?

Also AC_B777 you may want to modify the title, sounds like all airlines' LGW-Canada flights are suspended!

I think that Canada would need to have Open Skies with the EU to permit AY to operate between it and the UK. Has there been any sort of discussion about that sort of thing?

An open skies deal has been reached between the EU and Canada. Maybe its a phased implementation because this intervention by the Canadian authorities doesn't make any sense

Couldn't go travel direct just create an airline, register it in Canada and get that "airline" to wet lease AY metal? Truth be told I think this can an will be resolved.

Does anyone know when the new bilateral between Canada and the EU will be ratified? Does that mean AC will also need to remove it's ads about their upcoming YVR-CDG (through YUL)?

is pretty standard practice due to bureaucratic red tape.

Some public servants need a big kick up the arse !!!

I suspect AC is permitted to offer that routing as YUL is the gateway city. You could say it's no different that buying a ticket YVR-CDG on AC and taking a flight to YUL and making a connection.

Well, even without these flights, if they don't "resolve" this, there will be plenty of capacity from Canada to the UK/Europe for the summer 2009 season. I would suspect these flights would have just been a drop in the total capacity bucket.
