DECISIONS

  • Contract, preliminary injunction – Flair Airlines Ltd. v Kelowna Flightcraft Air Charter Ltd. – 2019 BCSC 1815
    Flair Airlines sought order restraining Kelowna from terminating dispatch services contract – pending outcome of full trial – dispatch services essential part of operations – required by Transport Canada – contract had no formal end date – contract had three-month notice provision – Flair failed to pay amounts under contract – Kelowna claimed amounts and gave notice – injunction granted – termination notice appeared defective (at first glance) – Flair would quickly go out of business if dispatch services not maintained
