Application by Timothy Rose against Air Canada

The Canadian Transportation Agency (Agency) will hold an oral hearing from Monday, December 2 to Thursday, December 5, 2019, at:

Victory Verbatim, 222 Bay St, Suite 900, Toronto, ON

The hearing will commence on December 2 at 9:00 a.m.

Mr. Rose uses a power wheelchair as a mobility device. In 2016, he attempted to book a flight from Toronto to Cleveland, but was informed that Air Canada had no flights that could accommodate him on this route because his wheelchair was too large to fit through the door to the cargo area of the aircraft.
