File No. M4835-2
Air Canada requests the Canadian Transportation Agency (the Agency) to amend the above Decisions by replacing the words "provided by Air Canada, and its affiliates and/or subsidiaries" and/or "operated by Air Canada and its affiliates and subsidiaries" with "operated by Air Canada and Jazz Air LP".
Under Licence No. 975055, Jazz Air LP, as represented by its general partner, Jazz Air Holding GP Inc. carrying on business as Air Canada Jazz (Jazz Air LP), is authorized to operate, inter alia, a scheduled international service, medium aircraft, in accordance with the Air Transport Agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of the United States of America signed on March 12, 2007.
Air Canada submits that Jazz Air LP recently revised its ownership structure and therefore is no longer an affiliate or subsidiary of Air Canada.
The Agency has reviewed and considered the application and the material filed in support thereof and finds, pursuant to section 32 of the Canada Transportation Act (the CTA), that there has been a change in the facts or circumstances pertaining to the above-noted Decisions since they issued and that they should be varied.
Accordingly, the Agency, pursuant to section 32 of the CTA, varies Decision Nos. 689-A-2000, 645-A-2005 as varied by 194-A-2006, 163-A-2006, 304-A-2006, 563-A-2006, 654-A-2006, 257-A-2007, 349-A-2007, and 394-A-2007, by replacing the words "affiliates" and/or "subsidiaries" with "Jazz Air LP" whenever reference is made to Air Canada and its affiliates and/or subsidiaries.
All other conditions in the above-noted Decisions apply.
