APPLICATION by Ground-Air Transfer, Inc. doing business as Charter One, Inc. of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, U.S.A. for a licence to operate a Class 9-4R Restricted Charter non-scheduled international service to transport passengers and goods between Canada and any other country using fixed wing aircraft in Group E.

File No. M4895-C272-5

Docket No. 90926


Ground-Air Transfer, Inc. doing business as Charter One, Inc. (hereinafter the applicant) has applied to the National Transportation Agency pursuant to subsection 94(1) of the National Transportation Act, 1987, R.S.C., 1985, c. 28 (3rd Supp.), for a licence to operate a Restricted Charter non-scheduled international service for the transportation of passengers and goods into and out of Canada using fixed wing aircraft in Group E.

The Agency has reviewed the application and the material in support thereof.

Following its consideration of the application and in light of the willingness of the United States Aeronautical Authority to give favourable consideration to Canadian air carriers applying to the United States for similar authority, the Agency finds it in the public interest to issue to Ground-Air Transfer, Inc. doing business as Charter One, Inc. a non-scheduled international licence.

The Agency, being satisfied that the requirements of section 94 of the National Transportation Act, 1987 have been complied with, will issue to Ground-Air Transfer, Inc. doing business as Charter One, Inc. a licence to operate a Class 9-4R Restricted Charter non-scheduled international service.

In accordance with the applicant's indicated intentions and as the applicant has demonstrated that it holds a Canadian Operating Certificate from Transport Canada valid for the operation of aircraft in Group E only, the Agency deems it in the public interest to authorize the Licensee to use aircraft in Group E. Moreover, as the applicant has established that it has satisfied the insurance requirements pursuant to paragraph 94(1)(c) of the National Transportation Act, 1987 for the carriage of passengers and goods, the Agency deems it in the public interest to authorize the Licensee to carry this type of traffic.

The licence to be issued pursuant to this Decision shall, in addition to the conditions prescribed by the Air Transportation Regulations, SOR/88-58, be subject to the following conditions:

The Licensee is authorized to use fixed wing aircraft in Group E.

The Licensee is authorized to transport:

  1. passengers on Common Purpose Charters from a point in Canada to a point in a foreign country;
  2. passengers and goods on Entity Charters from a point or points in Canada to a point or points in foreign countries; and
  3. passengers and goods, separately or in combination, on charter flights originating in a foreign country operated in accordance with the rules and regulations of the country of origin.
