HALIFAX, June 13 /CNW/ - Jazz Air LP, ("Air Canada Jazz") today welcomed
the decision made by the Honourable Mr. Justice Hugessen of the Federal Court
to allow Air Canada Jazz's appeal in its action against the Toronto Port
Authority to gain fair and equal access to the Toronto City Centre Airport.

and Air Canada Jazz's action will now be heard on its merits.

merits and will proceed with this action expeditiously. Air Canada Jazz looks
forward to resuming service at the Toronto City Centre Airport and calls on
the Toronto Port Authority to work with Air Canada Jazz to re-establish the
fundamental principle of free and equal access to public facilities.
