The Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) announced that national airline Tunisair, has indicated that it intends to commence its commercial activities in Canada , on May 31, 2016.
The Tunisian airline has begun the procedures required by the Canadian authorities for the issuance of a Canadian Aviation Document (CAD), a document required for the license application to be considered complete.
The CTA announced that the national airline Tunisair has filed a scheduled international license application to operate a service between Tunisia and Canada , said the source.
This application is not complete, CTA, however, said, adding that the Tunisian airline requested an exemption from the application of section 59 of the CTA.
Tunisair was the subject of a designation by the Tunisian Ministry of Transport authorizing it to operate an air service under the terms of the agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of the Republic of Tunisia stated in minutes signed on February 10, 2010, the CTA says.
It added that TUNISAIR filed a document issued by the government of its state equivalent to a scheduled international license and holds regulatory responsibility insurance policy.
Therefore, the CTA announced that the license will “most likely be issued before the planned start of operation of the service on May 31, 2016”.
