Air Canada Reviews Tribunal Decision On Competitive Pricing

Air Canada confirmed today that it has received
a decision by the Competition Tribunal to extend to December 31, 2000 the
temporary cease and desist order against Air Canada. Air Canada is reviewing
the Tribunal`s decision and awaiting further details on the reasons for the
ruling and therefore has not determined if any further action will be taken.

A temporary order, issued October 12 by the Commissioner of the
Competition Bureau, required that Air Canada cease and desist from offering
certain specific discount fares on certain routes on the grounds that the
offering of these fares could possibly constitute an anti-competitive act and
that CanJet could be eliminated as a competitor in the absence of a temporary
order. The routes affected include Ottawa-Halifax, Halifax-St.John`s and
