CTA wants your comments

There is only one month remaining to review and comment on the Canadian Transportation Agency’s (CTA) proposed regulatory amendments to Air Transportation Regulations (ATR) pertaining to the advertisement of the price of air services. The proposed ATR amendments were pre-published in Part I of the Canada Gazette ( on July 3 to give various interested groups and individuals, as well as Canadians in general, a final opportunity to review and comment. Comments received from interested parties by Sept. 13 may result in changes to the proposed regulatory amendments. The proposed amendments would require the price of an air service represented in any advertisement to: be the total price, inclusive of all taxes, fees and charges that a customer must pay to obtain and complete the air service; include a minimum level of description of the air service offered, including: origin and destination; whether the service is one way or round trip; limitations with respect to booking or travel availability periods; and provide the customer with access to a breakdown of the taxes, fees and charges which are paid to a third party (GST/HST, departure taxes, airport fees, security fees). The proposed amendments would also require that consumers have access to a listing of any optional services offered by the service provider for a fee or charge, and that the price of each service be displayed using an all-inclusive price format.
