Minimum Layover in Canada
February 19, 2013
Given the recent changes to the check-in times at a layover point brought about by the Contract changes (757) and the Global Settlement in MEC 5-12 (A319/A320 and Jumbo aircraft), the Union has identified a need to revise the information contained in the monthly Bid Package Cover Letter to reflect the minimum layovers in Canada. In Canada, there is a unique requirement to pre-clear U.S. Customs and Immigration formalities and this time must be built into the block to block minimum layover.
We've notified the company of the need for these changes and have provided them with the following information which we expect will be included beginning with the April Bid Package Cover Letter. The March 2013 Bid Package Cover Letter does not accurately reflect the minimum layover requirements given the revised check-in times.
