Air Canada says can renew plan to buy Boeing jets
Nov 1, 2005
MONTREAL (Reuters) - ACE Aviation Holdings Inc. unit Air Canada said on Tuesday a binding arbitration decision resolving pilot cost issues will allow it to renew a $6 billion plan to buy Boeing jets.
"With the successful resolution of this matter, we can now reengage Boeing to conclude an agreement on the acquisition of new wide-body aircraft and move forward with plans for the airline's future," Montie Brewer, Air Canada's president and chief executive said in a statement.
A disagreement with its pilots this summer over operating issues for new aircraft had forced Air Canada to cancel a $6 billion order made in April to buy 32 Boeing 777 and 787 Dreamliner jets.
