Swoop (WO, Hamilton, ON) has had to defer the launch of flights to the United States after failing to secure US government approval in time.

The low-cost unit of WestJet (WS, Calgary) had applied to the US Department of Transportation (DOT) for exemption authority and a foreign air carrier permit back in June this year. At the time, it had assumed the four-month period between the lodging of the application and its proposed launch of flights - October 11 - would prove sufficient.

/portal/stock/1750.jpg

Having lost out to London Heathrow in the tender for the construction of an additional main runway, London Gatwick Airport is now proposing to turn its standby northern runway, 08L/26R, into a de-facto secondary track.

Under its current planning agreement, the 2,565 metre-long 08L/26R is only used when the main runway, the 3,316 metre-long 08R/26L, is closed for maintenance or emergencies. However, with the 40-year planning agreement set to end in 2019, the airport said in its draft master plan that it could potentially bring its existing standby...
