Federal Approval Needed Airlines Reach In Service To By HERB JOHNSON Herald City JIall Reporter A request ny city council for a public hearing on a joint ap- plication by Air Canada and Pacific Western Airlines re- garding service to Lethbridge will be withdrawn, council de- cided last night. The withdrawal is conditional on the approval by the Ail- Transport Committee of a memorandum of intent ion drawn up by Time Airwavs Ltd. of Lethbridge, Air Canada and PWA. The chamber1 of commerce passed a similar resolution Monday afternoon. Council was told the provincial government also intends to withdraw its re- quest for a public hearing. The memorandum is the re- sult of meetings held between the three airlines to resolve the problems of adjustment of air service to the city. According to the terms of the memorandum, PWA will apply to withdraw its application to serve Lethbridge from Calgary, ft may, however, re apply at a later date. Time Airways will accept a condition in any licence it may hold, to limit its equipment to a gross take off weight of pounds. This will limit the airline to 20 passengers planes and it will remain a third level carrier. Time Airways will also make stops at Calgary and at Red Deer, eliminating non stop flights from Lethbridge to Ed- monton. Their role will be that of a feeder line. There will, however, be no restrictions on the number of flights made. All three companies will con- sult to provide good interline connections in and out of Cal- gary. Air Canada will delete from its application to suspend ser- vice to Lethbridge the condition that the service be given to PWA. Air Canada also agrees to reduce its services between Calgary and Edmonton. An agreement will be worked out between the three com- panies to maintain the current prices for air traffic between Lethbridge and points on cur- rent Air Canada and PWA ser- vices. Air Canada mil give notice in certain of its timetables of interline service available at Calgary and Lethbridge. Time Airways will continue to have its Lethbridge service listed in the official airlines guide. Lawyer J. D. Paterson, rep- resenting Time Airways, em- phasized that the agreement was subject to the approval of the Air Transport Committee of the Canadian Transport Com- mission. A topic that recurred several times during the meeting was that of the possibility of east- west sendee by Air Canada. Mr. Paterson assured council that an east west run was not a part of the current ATC con- siderations and that if a feasi- bility study were to show a need for service it would likely be provided.
