Global Target International Inc., d/b/a GTS Globotours Order 2014-2-14


About this Order

This consent order concerns advertisements by Global Target International Inc., d/b/a GTS Globotours (collectively Globotours), that violate the requirements specified in Part 399 of the Department’s regulations, and constitute unfair and deceptive trade practices in violation of 49 U.S.C. § 41712. An investigation by the Department’s Office of Aviation Enforcement and Proceedings (“Enforcement Office”) revealed that Globotours’ advertisements for air tours violated 14 CFR 399.84(a), 399.88 and 399.89, by failing to state the full fare and impermissibly stating that the advertised prices were subject to post-sale price increases even after final payment. The advertising violations also constituted unfair and deceptive practices in violation of section 41712.
