As both carriers have sought the same limited capacity, this has created a contested situation. Accordingly, on 22 June 2009, the Commission wrote to both HeavyLift and Pacific Air Express asking them to address the paragraph 5 criteria on the Ministers policy statement, with responses due by COB 2 July 2009. The paragraph 5 material from each applicant will be added to the website as it becomes available.
The Commission is inviting submissions from interested parties about the HeavyLift and Pacific Air Express applications. The closing dates for notice of intention to submit and to make a submission are COB 9 and 16 July 2009 respectively.
