I see! Sounds good, but the Transaero pic is not mine. I just found one from the data base. To tell ya the truth, the picture isn't that sharp. It was probably taken with a entry level 18-55mm. There is the person on A.net (Kavin), and his pics are super sharp. Here is a one I really like, but I bet ya the lens is worth as an average car that passes on the Airport Road hehe.

Sounds like a sub to me... That can be said for Alitalia B777 as well. They always send their B767-3ER.

Code Share allowed for Sri Lankan:

July 22, 2011

APPLICATION by SriLankan Airlines Limited carrying on business as SriLankan Airlines pursuant to subsection 78(2) of the Canada Transportation Act, S.C., 1996, c. 10, as amended.

File No. M4212/S613-4


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SriLankan Airlines Limited carrying on business as SriLankan Airlines (applicant) has applied to the Canadian Transportation Agency (Agency) for a temporary licence to operate, through code sharing, an international air service on a scheduled basis between Sri Lanka and Canada.

The authority requested by the applicant is extra-bilateral because there is no agreement or arrangement between Canada and Sri Lanka in force, which provides for the operation by a Sri Lankan air carrier of a scheduled international air service between Sri Lanka and Canada.

Pursuant to subsection 78(2) of the Canada Transportation Act (CTA), the Agency may issue a licence, on a temporary basis, for international air services that are not permitted in an agreement, a convention or an arrangement relating to civil aviation to which Canada is a party.

The service to be provided is not pursuant to an agreement or arrangement between Canada and Sri Lanka in respect of air services between Canada and Sri Lanka. The Agency finds that compliance by the applicant with subparagraph 69(1)(a)(i) of the CTA is impractical in this case. Accordingly, the Agency, pursuant to paragraph 80(1)(c) of the CTA, exempts the applicant from the application of subparagraph 69(1)(a)(i) of the CTA.

Prior to operating an international air service, the applicant must, in addition to holding a licence, hold a valid Canadian aviation document and have the prescribed liability insurance coverage. The Agency has considered the material on file and is satisfied that the applicant meets those requirements.

Accordingly, the Agency, pursuant to subsection 78(2) of the CTA, will issue to the applicant a temporary licence to operate, through code sharing, an international air service on a scheduled basis between Sri Lanka and Canada.

Concerning the duration of the subject authority, the Agency considers it appropriate to grant it until May 20, 2012.

The licence to be issued pursuant to this Decision shall be subject to the conditions prescribed by the Air Transportation Regulations, SOR/88-58, as amended, and to the following conditions:

1.The Licensee is authorized to operate, through code sharing, an international air service on a scheduled basis between Sri Lanka and Canada.
2.This licence shall terminate on May 20, 2012.
Any similar requests for a subsequent authority shall be submitted to the Agency for approval one month prior to the expiry of the licence.

So I guess that means they won't be using their own equipment any time soon. There really hasn't been a lot in the way of new airlines coming to YYZ this year.

That is correct. They will codeshare with AC from LHR. Not sure about ZHR. That was the last developments that took place. Maybe I am wrong so if anyone else knows different, let me know.

I recently went past the airport and I noticed that besides a whole new branding and identity overhaul, that the rest of T2 has now come down. I was quite shocked at how completely different the landscape looks, not to mention how much room there is there. T2 took up considerable space especially because it was a long linear terminal.

I mentioned this before, but I had seen a number of RFP's floating around my office referring to different projects that the airport wants to embark on, but I did not get a chance to really see what it any of them were about - well, one had something to do with the CARA foods, but the others were much larger and more extensive.

I do recall in the past that there were RFP's for the lands where McDonnell Douglas used to have their facilities, for an office park/hotel development, but a lot has probably changed since then - not to mention the airport is not exactly the most coordinated or coherent group of spaces/buildings. I never quite understand why it is that airports in NA are less likely to come up with plans where everything is much more integrated and cohesive, especially in an urban and architectural sense.

Let's see what happens now that T2 is gone..

That took some time indeed. Btw, I never knew what was the status with the old T2 leftovers. I am sure it gives you a nice overview on the new T1 from the outside, but i bet you the airport guys will to walk away. I have been told that they don't like seeing people over there, as well the Carligview side where you get closer to the 24R...

Kind of Open skies with Brazil.

OTTAWA, Aug. 8, 2011 /CNW/ - Prime Minister Harper's announcement today revealing an updated Open Skies type agreement between Canada and Brazil* is welcomed by the National Airlines Council of Canada (NACC) as part of a balanced approach to air liberalization.

"NACC members seek to expand services in growing markets such as Brazil to better serve the needs of tourists and business travelers, which in turn contributes to overall economic growth in Canada," said George Petsikas, President of the NACC. "We are very pleased with today's announcement as it will provide the legal rights for airlines of both countries to operate scheduled air services as frequently as desired, thus facilitating greater opportunities for two-way tourism, business travel and student exchanges.* In advance of the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympic Games both to be hosted by Brazil, the announcement is indeed timely."

The NACC strongly supports a balanced air liberalization policy framework for Canada that ensures a level playing field and provides maximum added-value reciprocal benefits for all stakeholders, including consumers, communities, airports, the tourism industry and Canada's airlines.

The National Airlines Council of Canada is a trade association founded by Canada's largest commercial airlines in order to ensure safe, sustainable and competitive air travel for Canadian consumers.

Hopefully that means that we will see TAM start YYZ service and/or direct flights to Rio at some point.

^ Is there enough room for TAM and AC for both to tap in? How is the Brazilian market in general?

It's not so much the O&D market that AC has cornered and that allows room for TAM. AC is targeting European and Asian connecting pax to South America. That said, the O&D market to and from Brazil is growing fast.
