Sunwing designated to offer scheduled air services to Antigua and Barbuda, and St. Lucia



    OTTAWA, Oct. 19 /CNW Telbec/ - The Honourable Lawrence Cannon, Minister
of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, today announced the designation
of Sunwing Airlines to operate scheduled international air services between
Canada and Antigua and Barbuda, and Canada and St. Lucia.
    "I am pleased that Sunwing's designations will provide additional airline
choices for Canadians travelling between Canada and Antigua and Barbuda, as
well as between Canada and St. Lucia," said Minister Cannon. "This increase in
scheduled air services is a great example of continued growth in the airline
industry."
    Under the provisions of Canada's international air transportation policy,
all Canadian air carriers may apply to the Minister for designation to operate
scheduled international air services. The latest designations were made
possible by the bilateral air transport agreements already in place between
Canada and Antigua and Barbuda, and Canada and St. Lucia.
    The agreements permit each country to designate any number of airlines
for the operation of scheduled air services to and from Canada. In addition,
there are no limits on the frequency of flights each designated airline is
allowed to operate.
