About this Order

This consent order concerns violations of certain consumer protection provisions of the Department of Transportation’s Public Charter regulations by Vision Airlines, Inc., a direct air carrier for a Public Charter program filed by Southern Sky Air & Tours, d/b/a Myrtle Beach Direct Air & Tours (Direct Air). Subsequent to the cessation of Direct Air’s operations and in violation of 14 CFR Parts 212 and 380, Vision Airlines cancelled charter flights less than ten days before the scheduled departure date and failed to return to their points of origin all passengers who purchased round-trip transportation on Vision Airlines’ operated Public Charter flights and whom Vision Airlines had already transported on their outbound flights. These activities constituted unfair and deceptive practices and unfair methods of competition in violation of 49 U.S.C. § 41712. This order directs Vision Airlines to cease and desist from future violations of section 41712 and the aforementioned Federal regulations and assesses the carrier a compromise civil penalty of $50,000.
