Missinippi Air Suspended by Canada Again on Safety Concerns

Oct. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Missinippi Airways, a charter-and-cargo carrier that flies to northern Manitoba and the Arctic, was ordered by the Canadian government for the second time this year to suspend service because of safety concerns.

The suspension of the company’s Air Operator Certificate is based on safety concerns related to the company’s operational control system, Transport Canada said today in a statement. Without a certificate, a company cannot provide commercial air services in Canada.

Missinippi’s operations were also suspended after an investigation of a July 4 accident in Pukatawagan, Manitoba, according to a July 16 statement from Transport Canada.

The carrier must “must demonstrate that it meets all applicable safety regulations before Transport Canada will reissue its Air Operator Certificate,” the government agency said today.

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