Transport Canada suspends Island Express Air’s AOC

    Transport Canada suspended (01-Mar-2018) Island Express Air‘s AOC in the “interest of public safety”, citing the carrier’s accident in Abbotsford on 23-Feb-2018 and its contraventions of the Canadian aviation regulations. The suspension prohibits the carrier from providing commercial air services, until Island Express Air can prove it keeps its operations consistently compliant with aviation safety regulations.
