January 2007: The European Union (EU), which hopes to jumpstart transatlantic open skies negotiations in meetings with US officials in Brussels, said that it plans to seek a separate open skies accord with Canada.
The European Commission (EC) said an (EU) - Canada deal "may generate consumer benefits of at least +$94 million through lower fares and could create +3,700 jobs in the first year." Canada currently has separate bilateral agreements with 17 (EU) member states, accords the (EC) said are in conflict with current (EU) law.
The Canadian Airports Council (CAC) embraced the proposal, urging the Canadian government "to make concluding an agreement a priority." (CAC) President & CEO, Jim Facette said an "open aviation area with our second biggest trading bloc and source of tourists, is a natural next step and would be a boon." Air traffic between Canada and the (EU) doubled between 2000 and 2005, according to (CAC), which noted that more than half of Canada's overseas tourists come from Europe.
The (EC) said a liberalized air treaty would increase annual (EU) - Canada passengers from 8 million currently to 14 million by 2011. The Canadian government recently said it would make commercial air transport liberalization a priority.
March 2007: Harmony Airways (HMY) of Canada announced suspension of its scheduled services. (HMY) will fly to Toronto for the last time on March 30 and cease all other flights by April 9. Launched in 2002 and based in Vancouver, the full-service airline operates 757s to six Canadian cities, five Hawaiian destinations, Las Vegas, and Palm Springs. It reportedly is exploring continuing to fly as a charter or wet-lease airplane (ACMI) provider. "Harmony (HMY) has always been committed to providing the best in-flight service in Canada and we apologize for the inconvenience this causes," it said on its website.
