OTTAWA - December 19, 2002 - The Canadian Transportation Agency today has written to KLM / Northwest Airlines giving them until January 2, 2003, to "show cause" why the Agency should not issue an order requiring the airline to honour certain tickets purchased from Travel Way Services, a Toronto-area travel agency.

Officials of Travel Way are alleged to have taken in $1.5 million for more than 700 tickets sold in October without remitting the money to the airlines involved, which include Air Canada, British Airways, BWIA-West Indies Airways and KLM / Northwest. The tickets in question were purchased between October 14 and October 21, 2002.

The Canadian Transportation Agency is a quasi-judicial administrative tribunal that regulates various modes of transportation under federal jurisdiction, including air, marine and rail.
