Sept. 6, 2011, Winnipeg – Transport Canada has reinstated a Manitoba
airline's air operator certificate after suspending it earlier this
summer.

The regulator took action against Missinippi Airways after inspecting a crash which killed a man in July.

The man died when a small commercial plane slid off a runway into a ravine and caught fire in the remote northern community of Pukatawagan, about 800 kilometres north of Winnipeg.

The reinstatement is effective immediately and follows the approval and implementation of the company's corrective action plans.

Advertisment

A company cannot provide commercial air services in Canada without the certificate.
