The proposed class action involved Flair Airlines Ltd.’s cancellation of various USA routes in or about February-March 2019. A proposed class action was filed on March 29, 2019 at the Federal Court seeking compensation for the affected passengers.
On June 9, 2020, the Federal Court approved the Plaintiff’s application to discontinue the proposed class action against Flair Airlines Ltd. This discontinuance means that the proposed class action
will no longer proceed.
As such, any potential class members who wish to proceed with their claims on an individual basis should consider doing so.
This notice has been approved for distribution by the Federal Court.
Le recours collectif proposé concerne l’annulation par Flair Airlines Ltd. d’une variété de vols aux États-Unis vers février et mars 2019. Un recours collectif proposé avait été déposé le 29 mars 2019 devant la Cour fédérale demandant un dédommagement pour les passagers visés.

Le 9 juin 2020, la Cour fédérale a approuvé la demande de la demanderesse de se désister du recours collectif proposé contre Flair Airlines Ltd. Ce désistement veut dire que le recours
collectif proposé n’ira plus de l’avant.

Ainsi, tout membre potentiel du groupe qui désire faire valoir sa réclamation devra le faire sur une base individuelle.

Le présent avis a été approuvé pour publication par la Cour fédérale.

All class members will be automatically included in the case once the case was certified. At this time, there is no action required to be part of this class action.

  1. Can I still commence an individual action (e.g. Small Claims case)?

This class action does not preclude you from pursing the matter individually in court. However, as part of the class action procedure, the Court may stay or suspend any individual actions or similar actions that are pending in order to conserve judicial resources and avoid both a multiplicity of proceedings and contradictory outcomes. Evolink Law Group cannot advise you in an individual action. Please consult your lawyer if you plan to proceed individually.
