About this Order

This consent order concerns violations of certain consumer protection provisions of the Department’s Public Charter regulations during 2008 by Turismo Tony Perez (Turismo), a Public Charter Operator that sold Public Charter flights directly to the public.

Turismo failed to properly maintain an escrow account and improperly used and handled charter participant funds in violation of 14 CFR Parts 380. These activities also constituted an unfair and deceptive practice in violation of 49 U.S.C. § 41712. This order directs Turismo to cease and desist from future similar violations and directs Turismo to pay a compromise civil penalty of $40,000.
