Landseaair Management Consultants & Office Services Ltd. carrying on business as Landseaair (hereinafter the applicant) has applied to the National Transportation Agency for a licence to operate the service set out in the title. The application was received on January 20, 1993 and was complete and ready for processing on January 28, 1993.

Notice of the application was published on February 24 and 25, 1993 in the newspapers of the areas concerned and copies of the notice were sent to selected air carriers and to others believed to be interested. No interventions opposing the granting of the application were filed with the Agency.

By letter dated April 21, 1993 the Agency advised the applicant that no opposing interventions had been received and that it should therefore file Section II of its application within one year from the date of the letter.

The applicant has now filed Section II of its application in respect of the authority to serve the points Pikangikum, Deer Lake, Sandy Lake, Cat Lake, Weagamow Lake, Bearskin Lake, Sachigo Lake, Muskrat Dam and Red Lake and the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Groups A, B and C. The Agency has reviewed the material filed and is satisfied that the applicant meets the requirements set out in paragraph 72(2)(a) of the National Transportation Act, 1987 in respect of the authority to serve the points Pikangikum, Deer Lake, Sandy Lake, Cat Lake, Weagamow Lake, Bearskin Lake, Sachigo Lake, Muskrat Dam and Red Lake and the authority to use fixed wing aircraft in Groups A, B and C.

To make provision for the level of Class 3 service to be consistent with demand anticipated by the applicant and in accordance with the applicant's indicated intentions, the Agency finds it in the public interest to authorize the Licensee to use fixed wing aircraft in Groups A, B and C.

Moreover, to facilitate the provision of Class 3 services to temporary resource development points, where such services do not duplicate services of another unit toll carrier, the Agency finds it in the public interest to authorize Landseaair Management Consultants & Office Services Ltd. carrying on business as Landseaair to commence service to such points provided that the addition and operation of such services are in accordance with the conditions set out in the attachment.

The licence will be subject to the terms and conditions prescribed by the Air Transportation Regulations, SOR/88-58, the conditions respecting Appendix "A" points contained in the attachment, which are hereby made a part of this Decision, and to the following condition:

The Licensee is authorized to use fixed wing aircraft in Groups A, B and C.
