Canada’s Transport Minister: Some airlines ‘could fail’ if required to immediately reimburse tickets

    Canada‘s Transport Minister Marc Garneau said “some” airlines “could fail” if required to “immediately reimburse all cancelled tickets”, which would consequently have a “devastating effect on the air sector, which has been reeling since the COVID 19 pandemic started” (Travel Pulse Canada/CBC, 29-May-2020). “I have enormous sympathy for those who would have preferred to have a cash refund in these difficult circumstances”, he noted, but added: “We expect and need an airline industry in this country”.
