SASAIR Inc. also carrying on business as Service Aérien du Saint-Laurent (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 November 26, 2002.
Under Licence No. 972128, the Licensee is authorized to operate a domestic service, small aircraft.
Under Licence No. 977186, the Licensee is authorized to operate a non-scheduled international service, small aircraft, to transport traffic on a charter basis between Canada and any other country.
By Decision No. 576-A-2001 dated November 7, 2001, Licence Nos. 972128 and 977186 were suspended pursuant to paragraphs 63(2)(b) and 75(2)(b) of the Canada Transportation Act, S.C., 1996, c. 10 (hereinafter the CTA). Pursuant to that Decision, the Licensee was provided with a period of one year from the date of the Decision to file an application to reinstate the said licences.
Pursuant to paragraphs 63(2)(b) and 75(2)(b) of the CTA, the Agency may suspend or cancel a domestic licence and a non-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 paragraphs 63(2)(b) and 75(2)(b) of the CTA, hereby suspends Licence Nos. 972128 and 977186.
To reinstate the suspended licences, 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 subparagraphs 61(a)(i) to (iii) and 73(1)(a)(i) to (iii) of the CTA, which provide that the Licensee must be Canadian, must hold a Canadian aviation document and must have prescribed liability insurance coverage, the Agency shall lift the suspension.
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 subparagraphs 61(a)(i), (ii) or (iii) and 73(1)(a)(i), (ii) or (iii) of the CTA, the Licensee is provided with an additional thirty (30) days to show cause why Licence Nos. 972128 and 977186 should not be cancelled pursuant to subsection 63(1) and paragraph 75(1)(a) of the CTA.
This Decision shall be affixed to Licence Nos. 972128 and 977186 and the suspension of the licences shall remain in effect until further order of the Agency.
