About this Order

This consent order concerns unauthorized foreign air transportation by WestJet in violation of 49 U.S.C. § 41301 and 14 CFR Part 212, arising from WestJet’s operating of unauthorized codeshare flights marketed by another foreign air carrier without obtaining proper authority from the Department. Violations of section 41301 and Part 212 also constitute unfair and deceptive practices and unfair methods of competition in violation of 49 U.S.C. § 41712. This order directs WestJet to cease and desist from such further violations and assesses a compromise civil penalty of $50,000.
