About this Order
This consent order concerns violations of certain consumer protection provisions of the Department’s Public Charter regulations by Holiday Airways Corporation d/b/a Holiday Air, a Public Charter operator. Holiday Air failed to apply for and receive approval from the Department prior to advertising Public Charter flights, in violation of 14 CFR Part 380.

These activities constituted unfair and deceptive practices and unfair methods of competition in violation of 49 U.S.C. § 41712 and 14 CFR 380.27. This order directs Holiday Air to cease and desist from future violations and assesses a compromise civil penalty of $50,000.
