Atlantic Coast Jet, Inc. carrying on business as Delta Connection (hereinafter the Licensee) has applied to the Canadian Transportation Agency (hereinafter the Agency) for the suspension set out in the title. The application was received on December 28, 2001.

Under Licence No. 000189, the Licensee is authorized to operate a scheduled international service between points in the United States of America and points in Canada.

Pursuant to paragraph 72(2)(b) of the Canada Transportation Act, S.C., 1996, c. 10 (hereinafter the CTA), the Agency may suspend or cancel a scheduled international licence in accordance with a request from the Licensee for the suspension or cancellation.

The Agency has considered the application and, pursuant to paragraph 72(2)(b) of the CTA, hereby suspends Licence No. 000189.

To reinstate the suspended licence, the Licensee is provided with a period of one year from the date of this Decision to file an application to that effect. If, at that time, upon consideration of the application, the Agency determines that the Licensee meets the requirements of paragraph 69(1)(a) of the CTA, which provides that the Licensee must be designated by its government to operate the air service, must hold a document issued by its government that is equivalent to a scheduled international licence issued by the Agency, must hold a Canadian aviation document and must have prescribed liability insurance coverage, the licence shall be reinstated.

Alternatively, one year from the date of this Decision, if the application for reinstatement is not filed or the Licensee does not meet any of the requirements of paragraph 69(1)(a) of the CTA, the Licensee is provided with an additional thirty (30) days to show cause why Licence No. 000189 should not be cancelled pursuant to subsection 72(1) of the CTA.

This Decision shall be affixed to Licence No. 000189 and the suspension of the licence shall remain in effect until further order of the Agency.
