Erroneous information on CHOI 98,1 Radio X

During the Fillion show broadcast on CHOI 98,1 Radio X last Thursday, August 25, the host stated that Air Transat management was in the process of urgently seeking an investor in order to sell the airline, and that it could fall into the control of foreign interests. This is untrue and Air Transat is not for sale. In addition, under the Canada Transportation Act, Air Transat A.T. Inc., wholly owned subsidiary of Transat A.T. Inc., must always be able to show that it is 75% controlled by Canadians in order to be able to hold the licenses required to operate an air service.
