Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Broader look taken at national air policy By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA A govern- nent attempt to put local air tperations on a solid footing is into a broader look it national air policy. Government planners say a of local or third-level carrier operations opens MARCHAND questions about national and regional service and how the three levels fit together. Air industry sources say carriers are concerned about transfer of routes from regional to local airlines and even from national to regional Dperators. The whole question of sub- sidies for uneconomic but so- cially necessary air service also is being studied by the government in efforts to prepare a policy for third- level carriers A study paper touching on these prepared by the Canadian transport will be discussed Friday at Saskatoon by Transport Minister Jean Marchand and western provincial ministers responsible for air matters Third-level carriers include operations feeding national or regional airlines in the popu- lated southern strip across the country or in remote areas Many small air carriers dislike the term third level which they say sounds like third class. ANNOUNCED BEFORE Mr Marchand announced last November that the government was going to prepare a policy for third- level carriers. But no change was planned in air policy assigning certain regions of Canada to regional air carriers which supplement operations of the national Air Canada and CP Air. National air policy affecting CP Air and Air Canada has re- mained untouched except for a government move earlier this year to lift certain restrictions on CP Air transcontinental flights. The privately-owned airline no longer is required to end all transcontinental flights from Vancouver in Montreal. The third-level study has been launched to develop policy giving small air carriers some stability. Some local carriers have said government policy state- ments have helped national and regional carriers grow.. These statements have lim- ited competition among regional and national carriers and one federal consultant said last November that this has given regional airlines some financial clout in seeking loans. But the study paper says that a policy for local air carriers the examination of the complex inter-relationship of all sectors of air transport.'.' Policies affecting all three air carrier levels should be facets of a national policy aiming at good and efficient the commission says One issue in third-level dis- cussions is transfer of routes from one earner to another. As the regional air carriers have grown they have moved to drop some of their less economic routes. But air industry sources say regional airlines are unwilling to abandon many of these routes if they cannot obtain certain runs they expected to get from Air Canada and CP Air. third-level carriers would seem logical choices for some regional routes as they are being dropped. While many routes open to the third-level carriers are po- tentially some are not. Some services to remote areas would seem to require subsidies if they are to survive The commission paper says that a careful study must be made of actual demand for air service. This would require cjose consultation with the provinces. This would establish if there are gaps in air service that should be filled and indicate whether Heep those promises you've mode to yourself with Q little help from a Bonus Savings Recount. find-Royal Certified Service helps you figure out how much you con afford to save.
