  3. is this the next step towards open skies? will we be getting the short end of the stick on this? thanks! https://www.otc-cta.gc.ca/eng/ruling/194-a-2012 Decision No. 194-A-2012 May 22, 2012 APPLICATION by Air Canada, on behalf of itself; Colgan Air, Inc. carrying on business as US Airways Express, United Express and Continental Connection (Colgan); and Champlain Enterprises, Inc. carrying on business as CommutAir and Continental Connection (CommutAir), pursuant to section 60 of the Canada Transportation Act, S.C., 1996, c. 10, as amended, and section 8.2 of the Air Transportation Regulations, SOR/88-58, as amended. File No.: M4835-2-56 Air Canada, on behalf of itself, Colgan and CommutAir, has applied to the Canadian Transportation Agency (Agency) for an approval to permit Air Canada to provide its scheduled international services between Canada and the United States of America by selling transportation in its own name on flights operated by Colgan and CommutAir between Canada and the United States of America, including between points in the United States of America, for an indefinite period or such period as may be authorized by the Agency. As the application was filed less than 45 days before the first planned flight, as required by subsection 8.2(2) of the Air Transportation Regulations (ATR), an exemption from the application of this provision is necessary. The Agency finds that compliance with subsection 8.2(2) of the ATR is impractical in this case. Accordingly, the Agency, pursuant to paragraph 80(l)(c) of the Canada Transportation Act (CTA), exempts Air Canada from the application of subsection 8.2(2) of the ATR. Air Canada is licensed to operate scheduled international services, medium and large aircraft, in accordance with the Air Transport Agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of the United States of America signed on March 12, 2007. The Agency has considered the application and the material in support and is satisfied that it meets the remaining requirements of section 8.2 of the ATR. Accordingly, the Agency, pursuant to paragraph 60(1)(b) of the CTAand section 8.2 of the ATR, approves the use by Air Canada of aircraft and flight crew provided by Colgan and CommutAir, and the provision by Colgan and CommutAir of such aircraft and flight crew to Air Canada, to permit Air Canada to provide its scheduled international services on licensed routes between Canada and the United States of America by selling transportation in its own name on flights operated by Colgan and CommutAir between Canada and the United States of America, including between points in the United States of America, for an indefinite period from the date of this Decision. This approval is subject to the following conditions: Air Canada shall continue to hold the valid licence authority. Air Canada shall apply its published tariffs, in effect, to the carriage of its traffic. Nothing in any commercial agreement between the air carriers relating to limits of liability shall diminish the rights of passengers as stated in such tariffs. The air service approved shall only be provided as long as a code-sharing agreement providing for such service remains in effect. Air Canada, Colgan and CommutAir shall continue to comply with the insurance requirements set out in subsections 8.2(4), 8.2(5) and 8.2(6) of the ATR. Air Canada shall continue to comply with the public disclosure requirements set out in section 8.5 of the ATR. Air Canada, Colgan and CommutAir shall provide the Agency with a copy of any new agreement or amendments to the code-sharing agreement, including any new or amended annex, without delay. This approval does not apply to the carriage of cargo. Member(s) Raymon J. Kaduck J. Mark MacKeigan
  4. assuming the gear is at AVEOS and not at a another MRO. Not sure how far along the heavy maintenance is or if there are any problems with the aircraft but it could possibly be weeks away from getting the gear on or in a good case scenario it could be days away..
  5. Unless the aircraft is on jacks with the gears removed, in the case of one of our the 767's.
  6. CCAA paper work http://www.filedropp...m/aveosccaa2012 "the profibality of aveos business was impacted due to crushingly high labour costs, disputes with air canada, rising fuel costs and reduced airline traffic." "unfavourable labour rulings " "it does not forsee that it will soon be profitable without a significant restructuring of its business and debt obligations." items 77 through to 82 under Air Canada disputes are a good read.
  7. We're hearing also YUL and YVR, nothing confirmed yet.
  8. http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/business/aveos-workers-forced-to-take-unpaid-leave-143035505.html Aveos workers forced to take unpaid leave By: Murray McNeill FIFTY-SIX workers at a local plant that does maintenance and repair work on Air Canada planes are being forced to take what amounts to a week off without pay next week, according to spokesmen for their union. Lorne Hammerberg, president of Local 714 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, said Air Canada's decision to postpone optional maintenance checks on some of its planes means there will be only two planes to work on next week at Aveos Fleet Performance Inc.'s Winnipeg facility instead of the four that had been scheduled. As a result, 56 of the plant's approximately 320 unionized workers have been told by Aveos to stay home for the week. Hammerberg said the forced one-week leaves will likely continue, with a different group of workers affected each week until Air Canada puts the planes back on the maintenance schedule. The union hasn't been told when that will happen. IAMAW western region general chairman Tony Didoshak said the same thing is happening to employees at the Aveos maintenance base in Montreal. He said the union has complained to a government-appointed arbitrator, and a hearing is scheduled for next Wednesday in Toronto. Aveos is the private-sector firm that was created in 2007 when Air Canada converted its technical services division, which did all of the maintenance and repair work on its planes, into a stand-alone operation. murray.mcneill@freepress.mb.ca Republished from the Winnipeg Free Press print edition March 17, 2012 B5
  9. http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/Aveos+Fleet+Performance+track+bankruptcy+merger+sources/6290490/story.html Aveos Fleet Performance on track for bankruptcy or merger: sources Insiders say aircraft maintenance company no longer making pension contributions; suppliers demanding cash; employees seeking jobs elsewhere Read more: http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/Aveos+Fleet+Performance+track+bankruptcy+merger+sources/6290490/story.html#ixzz1p0ZYuuGv MONTREAL - Aveos Fleet Performance Inc., which repairs most of Air Canada’s aircraft, could file for bankruptcy protection or merge soon, sources tell The Gazette. Several insiders said Monday that the St. Laurent company of more than 2,500 employees, sold off by Air Canada in 2007 to pay the then-struggling airline’s debts, is no longer making employees’ pension contributions or maintaining their benefit packages, and is losing business. Air Canada represents roughly 85 per cent of its work under a contract due to expire next year. Later Monday, Aveos issued a statement denying they had stopped making contributions. "Aveos has made and continues to make employee and employer payments to its pension plan in accordance with its obligations under the Federal Pension Benefits Standards Act," the statement read. One person close to the firm said several suppliers are accepting only cash payments rather than the usual 30-, 60- or 90-day bill invoices. And Roger Morrissette, a delegate of Local 1751 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, said that a training class on a new parts-tracking system by consulting firm Ramco for about 30 Aveos employees was cancelled suddenly. “My guys tell me the (tutor) told the class that Aveos didn’t have the means to pay him and left the classroom.” Daniela Pizzuto, spokesperson for Aveos, said she could not comment on any substantive issue regarding operations or on rumours. Ronnie Di Bartolo, founder and president of Trois Rivières MRO firm Premier Aviation, said he had not heard any official confirmation the firm would seek to place itself under protection from creditors or be acquired or merge with another firm. “But starting about two months ago, I had some Aveos people placing calls and sending résumés, so I guessed they must know something we don’t know,” said Di Bartolo, whose firm sub-contracts business from Aveos. The calls and CVs were from middle to upper management, he added, as well as from shop-floor workers. Di Bartolo said that “we have not been approached” by Aveos to gauge interest in a merger or buyout. His much-smaller firm concentrates on airframe work, a segment that Aveos exited to focus on engines, systems and components. Is he interested in any part of Aveos? “I would possibly look at doing some contracts together, maybe for some larger clients, working hand in hand with them since they are better equipped than we are. So sharing work with them I would be interested, yes, on maybe commercial or military.” Robin Wohnsigl, a former CEO of Air Canada Technical Services, as Aveos was named before being spun off, said from Washington that he asked Aveos CEO Joe Kolshak for a meeting at the MRO industry’s big annual trade show in Dallas between April 2 and 5. He was surprised, said Wohnsigl, when Kolshak said he didn’t know if he would be there or not. He found it odd because Aveos is usually a major exhibitor at the show. “When I was CEO, I always made a point of being there – it was one of my best sales opportunities.” Wohnsigl said he battled former Air Canada president Robert Milton when he included ACTS in Air Canada’s 2003 bankruptcy protection. Airlines are nervous about doing business with MROs in such precarious situations and tend to look for alternatives, and Wohnsigl lobbied hard to exclude ACTS from the protection filing. Kolshak stepped in after CEO Chahram Bolouri left Aveos abruptly last May 2. Di Bartolo said he would be “absolutely interested” in airframe work from Aveos, if it comes to that. “But the sad part of this is that if they close down, there would be quite a few jobs lost. Some will be hired by other firms but there will always be job losses. But who knows what going to happen?” Marcel St. Jean, president of IAMAW local 1751, which represents 1,700 Aveos workers, said that most employees are bracing for a company announcement this week or next. fshalom@montrealgazette.com © Copyright © The Montreal Gazette Read more: http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/Aveos+Fleet+Performance+track+bankruptcy+merger+sources/6290490/story.html#ixzz1p0ZLKiwd
