HAITI AIR TRANSPORT PERMIT APPLICATION

April 2, 1974, 9:57 p.m.

1. GOH IS IN ERROR IN ASSUMING THAT CAB HAS RECOMMENDED THAT HAITI AIR TRANSPORT BE ISSUED PERMIT FOR SERVICE TO SAN JUAN, MIAMI AND NEW YORK. CAB ADMINISTRATIVE LAW JUDGE ON MARCH 21 RECOMMENDED THAT SUCH PERMIT BE ISSUED, BUT HIS RECOMMENDATION IS NOT OPINION OF BOARD BEFORE WHICH MATTER IS NOW PENDING. ONLY AFTER BOARD REACHES ITS DECISION IS MATTER REFERRED TO PRESIDENT FOR HIS ACTION. 2. FYI. THERE COULD BE PROBLEM OVER HAITI AIR TRANSPORT'S ROUTE REQUEST BECAUSE ROUTES TO NEW YORK, MIAMI AND SAN JUAN REPRESENT MORE THAN CAB HAS GRANTED TO OTHER CARIBBEAN AIRLINES IN COMPARABLE MARKET SIZE SITUATIONS. AIR HAITI CURRENTLY HOLDS AUTHORITY FOR ROUTES TO NEW YORK, MIAMI, AND SAN JUAN, BUT THIS IS FOR CARGO ONLY. AN AIR HAITI APPLICATION FOR PASSENGER AUTHORITY AT THESE POINTS CONFIDENTIAL CONFIDENTIAL PAGE 02 STATE 066091 HAS NOT BEEN ACTED ON BECAUSE OF INTERVENING APPLICATION OF HAITI AIR TRANSPORT AND INDICATION IT WOULD BE HAITIAN INTERNATIONAL AIRLINE.
