Air Canada provides the following comment in
response to Roots Air`s announcement today that it had filed a complaint to
the Competition Bureau regarding Air Canada`s pricing on the Toronto-Calgary
and Toronto-Vancouver routes.
“The notion that Air Canada is engaging in predatory behaviour by
offering an economy fare with restrictive conditions between Toronto and
Vancouver at $999 defies common sense - this type of posturing cannot be taken
seriously,” said Calin Rovinescu, Executive Vice President, Corporate
Development and Strategy.
