Canada Halts Missinippi Airways Service on Safety Concern After Accident

The Canadian government ordered Missinippi Airways, a charter-and-cargo carrier that flies to northern Manitoba and the Arctic, to suspend service due to safety concerns.

The action comes after an inspection that followed a July 4 accident in Pukatawagan, Manitoba, Transport Canada said today in a statement.

The carrier must “demonstrate that it meets all applicable safety regulations” before Transport Canada will allow it to operate again, the government agency said.

A call placed by Bloomberg News to Missinippi’s headquarters after regular business hours wasn’t immediately returned.
