APPLICATION by European Aviation Air Charter Limited carrying on business as European Air Charter for 1 authority and a program permit to operate a fifth freedom advance booking charter round-trip flight between Montréal (Mirabel), Quebec, Canada, and Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on June 10, 2002, using a 440 seat B747 aircraft, on behalf of Canada Air Charter; and 2) exemptions from the application of paragraph 50 1 b, section 52 and subsection 110 1 of the Air Transportation Regulations, SOR/88-58, as amended.
File No. M5000/E193
Based on the above findings, the Agency, consistent with paragraph 22 b of the ATR, hereby denies European's application for authority to operate the proposed fifth freedom charter flight between Montréal (Mirabel), Quebec, Canada, and Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on June 10, 2002.
As the application for authority to operate the proposed flight is denied, it is not necessary for the Agency to address the application for the exemptions from the application of paragraph 50(1)a, section 52 and subsection 110(1) of the ATR.
